Dying with Grace

by Judson Cornwall

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


Dying With Grace, by Judson Cornwall, is an honest insiderís look at terminal illness. Diagnosed with cancer in 2001, Cornwall details his struggles of faith and healing. As an itinerant minister for 27 years and now as a homebound minister, Cornwall demonstrates the plan and purpose of God in the midst of inexplicable circumstances and pain.

Drawing heavily from the word of God, both in life and as an author, readers are exhorted to go before the Lord and seek His plans and purpose for their life and ministry. This easy to read book includes a question and answer section on things to do, things not to do, and how to be of assistance to the ill and their caregivers.

Cornwall comforts with the comfort he himself has received, naming what were encouragements as well as discouragements in his struggle. The reader is literally drawn to the authorís bedside for a heartening chat on life, death, and the hope we have in Christ.

The author has limited use of outside resources, but extensive citation of his previous works, which is initially off-putting. However, the sincerity of the message and the obvious surrender to the will and ways of God overrides any seeming pride. Cornwall has lived a blessed life and continues to do so, amidst suffering. If you are dealing with a terminal illness, are ministering to someone who is, or will face death some day, this book is a sensitive treatment of considerations before departing for the hereafter. -- Suzanne Rae Deshchidn, Christian Book
