Lucinda Mosher, Faculty Associate in Interfaith Studies, has a new book out titled Personhood, Illness, and Death in America’s Multifaith Neighborhoods: A Practical Guide from Jessica Kingsley Publishers.
The publisher describes it this way: “This book explores the varied attitudes of different mainstream faith traditions in the U.S. towards care for the dying, end of life issues, and grief and mourning. Interwoven with interviews and personal stories from people of many different faiths, it considers matters of health care, end-of-life issues, death, grieving and memorializing.”
Reviews include this one from Barbara Brown Taylor, author of Learning to Walk in the Dark. ‘This book changed me as much as anything I have read in recent years. If you want to know more about the full humanity your new neighbors-and are willing to think more deeply about your own eventual demise as well-then you cannot have better companions than the ones Lucinda Mosher introduces you to in this book.”
