Editorial Reviews

“More than a collection of stories, Holy Dying guides us with vivid images and unforgettable personalities through questions about leaving this life which we all will ask sooner or later. Few lives combine the medical and pastoral disciplines of caregiving with which Ellen Richardson has approached those with whom she has walked, and this remarkable book gives us a unique look at the graceful moment a person's last days can be.” —Barbara Crafton, author, The AlsoLife and Called “Every priest knows that ministry at time of death is one of our greatest honors and responsibilities. As a seminary professor, I’m always looking for resources that my students can use during the tender time preceding death. Dr. Richardson’s book provides a rich source of solidarity and wisdom for both ministers and the faithful as they consider the greatest mystery humans encounter—death itself.” —Danielle Tumminio, Assistant Professor of Pastoral Theology and Director of Field Education, Seminary of the Southwest “Ellen Richardson, priest and physician, has compiled a trove of her own stories about encounters with the dying, not all of which have happy outcomes. All her stories, however, leave room for grace and intimations of God’s presence. She has provided a valuable resource for anyone facing death, whether in the next week or in the next decades, for those with deep faith and for those with none at all.” —Wayne Smith, 10th Bishop of Missouri
