Item Description...
Overview
The last words of the dying have long captured the popular imagination. Why this abiding interest in exit lines? Perhaps because these final words - spoken in hope or fear, joy or sorrow - provide a view from the border between this world and the next. As this provocative and sometimes amusing collection illustrates, those who have gone before leave us with much more than helpful epigrams or witticisms. Paul Thigpen points out that their final words can actually "point us to fundamental realities - to the very heart of God." Even those sinners and strays who failed to live their faith may reveal much about the final shape of things to come. From comforting to sobering, these selections provide food fof thought regarding the nature of Christian hope and the promise of eternal life.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Themes to Live With  Oct 14, 2006
Thigpen, an editor and journalist, has gathered hundreds of "last" or nearly last utterances attributed to individuals from the time of Jesus to the twenty-first century representing every walk of life. No one would argue that this is a book to be sampled, but it is much more than that. Thigpen offers a coherent resource that gives even the casual browser something to think about. Each of the 19 thematic chapters opens with a quotation from scripture and brief introduction. All "last words" quotations contain a brief statement identifying the person and circumstances.

The chapter entitled "No One Will Take Your Joy" quotes John 16:22 and begins with a little history of St. Thomas More, "a first-class joker," who carried his sense of humor to the gallows. Thigpen notes that "a finely tuned sense of humor is often the distinguishing mark of clear vision." Taking the will of God seriously, he suggests, allows us to take everything else, even death, lightly. In addition to humor, Thigpen addresses such topics as wisdom, detachment, forgiveness, and concern for those left behind.

This work could easily be adapted for use by faith-sharing groups. Members might select a topic, and, after reading the chapter, reflect on the theme and discuss quotations that were meaningful to them and the insights they gained.
