Before you finish reading this back cover, nearly 105 people will die. Within the hour, about 6,316 people will take their final breath. Will you be one of them?
Sadly, many of the people who die today will do so having made no preparations for what lies beyond the grave. It doesn’t have to be that way. Before your life comes to an end, you can enter into the calm assurance that King David had as he looked forward to dwelling “in the house of the Lord forever.” Then, you can share in David’s confidence as you face the darkest hour of your life: “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for You are with me.”
The purpose of this book is two-fold. First, it is meant to help the reader make the proper preparations for his or her own death, both body and soul. Second, I pray that this book will be a practical resource for those who seek to counsel those confronted with the reality of their own death or the death of a loved one. From private Bible study, personal observations, and numerous conversations with other servants of the Lord over the years, I have gleaned a number of insights that I trust will benefit many.
