Sharing the Practice
"A beautiful book of meditations."

Christian Century
"McEntyre's language is reflective and sensitive but not sentimental. . . . A thoughtful and realistic window into the often hidden, though well-traveled, end-of-life journey."

Michael Card
— musician and writer
"Marilyn McEntyre embodies simple, patient kindness in the pages of this book."

Samuel Wells
— vicar of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, London
"When we face our own death, or the death of someone dearer to us than life itself, we perceive as-yet formless truths and strive to articulate the fearful truths we apprehend. What we need is a companion who can abide amid our chaos, a sage who can choose the right moment to share a word, and a prophet who can say the thing we shrink from, yet need to hear. Marilyn Chandler McEntyre is all of these things. Going gently with her into the prison of death will set you free."

Topeka Capital-Journal
"Letting go of a loved one who is nearing the end of life is a difficult proposition, no matter how you slice it. Drawing from her years as a hospice volunteer, as well as from her experience of caring for her own family members, Marilyn Chandler McEntyre delves into this delicate subject with grace and compassion in her new book."
