Publisher's Description

 
In this Tuesdays with Morrie-type book, a pastor reveals lessons for living he's learned from the dying.

What would you do with your life, if you knew it was going to end soon? Mercy is a pastor's recording of the life lessons he's discovered as a result of sitting at the bedsides of courageous people facing death's certainty. Peter Roebbelen explores the gifts that people have given him, the wisdom that he's gleaned from them, almost as if he's been the one being counseled, rather than the other way around.  

This joyful and instructive book will encourage anyone who reads it to live to the fullest in the present, and to love the people around them as never before.

    "We are all born powerless and we all die powerless."

    The author uses that phrase, but his book recounts the many ways people do have power over how they perceive and face dying. But more so, his book is about how family and loved ones can celebrate the life shared. He shares how there is life in dying. In his book, he shares some intimate stories of his life as a pastor and the times he's been privileged more by the joy shared and strength of those to whom he's ministered. He shares their stories.

    In this book, the author broaches a subject from which most shy away. But with his sharing, there are some important points we may not have considered. It may not be a subject most are looking to read about, but the insights shared are worth the read.

    The author writes in an easy flowing manner as he shares each story, and makes for wanting to head on to the next chapter.

    Basically, this isn't a book that I might have chosen as a read. But once I started the book, I read on with anticipation of the stories he was sharing, and what needed information could be garnered from the stories. Without spoilers, I'll just say give Mercy a try. It may be a surprise subject matter that touches your heart more than you'd expect.

    I received a copy of MERCY LIFE IN THE SEASON OF DYING from the publisher. No review positive or otherwise was required. All review opinions are my own.
