‘In past ages preparing for death was a major part of life. Yet we rarely speak of it and what might happen to us after it. This anthology of readings is a gentle and hopeful way to consider the inevitability of death and be as prepared for it as we can be, open to the possibility that death is a “great adventure and a journey not so much into the unknown as into the great ocean of God’s love”’.

The Rt Revd Dr Graham Tomlin, Bishop of Kensington

This unique anthology of biblical and other sacred religious texts, sermons, essays, poems and hymns offers a rich collection of perspectives and beliefs on what lies beyond death, and is designed to bring encouragement, comfort and reassurance as well as prompting spiritual reflection and intellectual curiosity. Ian Bradley is a much-respected writer, broadcaster and academic, and a former Church of Scotland minister, and offers a short commentary on the facing page of each reading, providing context and helpful information and observations. This book will be a valuable resource for all who seek to understand death personally or professionally.

A regular writer for the Tablet, the Times and the Telegraph, his career has encompassed full-time journalism and broadcasting and University teaching and chaplaincy work.
