As I Lay Dying tells the story of one person's encounter with death and what he learned from that encounter. Richard John Neuhaus has been to the very edge of mortality, and he has lived to tell about it--with deep wisdom, relentless realism, unconquerable hope, and more than a touch of humor. This is a book of meditations for religious believers, unbelievers, and those who are not sure what they believe. Beautifully written, intellectually probing, and uncompromisingly candid, As I Lay Dying shakes the foundation of our being, and then leads, oddly but unconvincingly, to a peave that is on the far side of our fear and our despair.
