Sharing Christ with the Dying by Melody Rossi

The subtitle of this book, bringing hope to those near the end of life, encapsulates its theme from cover to cover. This is a topic that resonates with me both as a Christian and as a health care provider. The author writes about her personal experiences with caregiving for her mother, father, and stepmother at the end of their lives. She sensitively shares their stories of coming to Christ during the dying process. God used her to minister to them by simply serving in love until eventually doors were opened for prayer and spiritual conversation. She also wrote from her own perspective as a prior patient and how this equipped her to provide care to others. Practical advice and spiritual support are interwoven throughout each chapter that deals with a distinct aspect of walking alongside a loved one in this capacity. Her words of wisdom are Scripturally based and dependent on the Holy Spirit’s work to change hearts. This is a very well written, informative, and encouraging book for believers walking alongside those in need of true hope at the end of their lives.
