As a hospice chaplain, Kerry Egan didn’t offer sermons or prayers, unless they were requested; in fact, she found, the dying rarely want to talk about God, at least not overtly. Instead, she discovered she’d been granted a powerful chance to witness firsthand what she calls the “spiritual work of dying”—the work of finding or making meaning of one’s life, the experiences it’s contained and the people who have touched it, the betrayals, wounds, unfinished business, and unrealized dreams.

“Funny, honest, and self-deprecating… On Living adds to the understanding of end-of-life issues in an important and accessible way… If there is one thing death teaches us, it’s how to live.” (New York Times Book Review)
