This is the best book we have ever seen to show the shortness and uncertainty of life and why we should live in anticipation of and preparation for death. Says we should not live being afraid to die because we are not prepared; but realizing that death is one's grand entrance into true life; if one is well prepared; we will make it our life's work to get ready. A powerful book to help us get properly oriented spiritually in life. Written by Cardinal Giovanni Bona. 195 pages.
