Sharing Christ with the Dying, Melody Rossi
The title is eye catching - the problem not unique. The trouble has always been how to share the gospel without presenting it as a "get out of hell free" pass. In this book Melody Rossi does an excellent job in giving practical advice for the person in this most difficult and emotional time. Without making a person feel guilty for not sharing their faith Rossi does something I call "helping others succeed". In kindness and compassionate love Rossi gives practical advice for those seeking to evangelize the dying without employing manipulative or guilt ridden strategies. If you are a person currently caring for an unbeliever in their last days this would be the book for you. If you are in a ministry that places you in hospitals, nursing home or other situations that brings you in contact with the dying and terminally ill this would be a book worth reading. Thanks to Bethany House for a free review copy.
