Dr. Rubin has created a challenging book that provided me with a great deal of insight into the source of some of my previously inexplicable bursts of anger. Each chapter is brief and easy-to-read, generating a lot of thinking and reflection far in excess of the amount of ink consumed. I've had some challenge reading it straight through - I find my time of reflecting sometimes stretches into several days. I haven't finished it yet. but I expect to set it aside at the end and revisit it later, when I've had time to reflect on its totality. I think some of the chapters, perhaps most, need to be reread. The insights in the book are deep, and the insight generated by its reading is even deeper.

This is a great summary of the growth of hospice in the last 40 years, with an historical perspective. The focus is on the "why" of hospice, and serves as an excellent primer for those interested in the hospice movement. I am a late-life minister (third career) aspiring to become a hospice chaplain. I found this to be a wonderful introduction to the philosophy of hospice. It also was an easy read - I did not want to put it down.


Once upon an Easter: 5 "I Believe in Jesus" Read-Aloud Stories (Once Upon Books)
Review Date: 6/6/2011


My grandson has been reading this book to my wife and me at bedtime (reversed roles). It presents various aspects of the Resurrection drama in easy-to-comprehend bites, as stories of a boy and his family approaching the Easter celebration.
