Overview

This beautiful volume of reflections by Marilyn Chandler McEntyre is for family members and friends who are doing the life-changing work of accompanying someone on the final stretch of his or her journey. In quiet counterpoint to our hurried lives, A Long Letting Go invites caregivers to slow down for reflection and prayer as they prepare to say goodbye to a beloved friend or family member and grieve that loss.

Based on McEntyre’s personal and professional experience with the dying, these gentle meditations—each consisting of a short opening quote, a reflection, and a prayer—offer comfort, direction, hope, and respite to caregivers during a difficult season of their lives.

In the Logos edition, this volume is enhanced by amazing functionality. Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches to find exactly what you’re looking for. Take the discussion with you using tablet and mobile apps. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.
