Product Description

A practical resource for family and friends as they prepare to say goodbye to a loved one

At some point in our lives most of us will become caregivers. And part of that complex calling is letting go of those we love when our caregiving has run its course.

This beautiful collection of reflections by Marilyn Chandler McEntyre is for family members and friends who are doing the life-changing work of accompanying someone on the final stretch of his or her journey and mourning the losses that come at every stage. In quiet counterpoint to our hurried lives, A Long Letting Go invites caregivers to slow down for reflection and prayer as they prepare to say good-bye to a beloved friend or family member and grieve that loss.

Based on McEntyre's professional and personal experience with the dying, these gentle meditations offer comfort, direction, hope, respite, and consolation to caregivers during a difficult season of their own lives.

This collection of reflections for the caregiver is a companion to the author's previous book A Faithful Farewell: Living Your Last Chapter with Love, which is a book to help a dying person process and reflect well on his or her last days.

Publisher's Description

Sharing the Practice
"A beautiful book of meditations."

Christian Century
"McEntyre's language is reflective and sensitive but not sentimental. . . . A thoughtful and realistic window into the often hidden, though well-traveled, end-of-life journey."

Michael Card
— musician and writer
"Marilyn McEntyre embodies simple, patient kindness in the pages of this book."

Samuel Wells
— vicar of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, London
"When we face our own death, or the death of someone dearer to us than life itself, we perceive as-yet formless truths and strive to articulate the fearful truths we apprehend. What we need is a companion who can abide amid our chaos, a sage who can choose the right moment to share a word, and a prophet who can say the thing we shrink from, yet need to hear. Marilyn Chandler McEntyre is all of these things. Going gently with her into the prison of death will set you free."

Topeka Capital-Journal
"Letting go of a loved one who is nearing the end of life is a difficult proposition, no matter how you slice it. Drawing from her years as a hospice volunteer, as well as from her experience of caring for her own family members, Marilyn Chandler McEntyre delves into this delicate subject with grace and compassion in her new book."
