No one likes to be ill. For some, death is a taboo subject. But all of us will face illness that will claim our lives, even if we are currently in good health and even if it comes very suddenly. Writing sensitively, Gerard Chrispin demonstrates how facing the fact of death can be a big advantage and lead to personal blessing, once the initial shock of a diagnosed illness has passed. That is true also for those seeing a loved one suffer serious illness. He shows how we can experience Gods overcoming blessing and help, no matter what lies ahead, if our personal trust is in Jesus Christ.
