Advance Praise for Mrs. Hunter’s Happy Death

Mrs. Hunter’s Happy Death deserves, and will delight, a wide readership. Very few authors could pull off such a tour de force where history, theology, spirituality, and pastoral care sit so cozily within the covers of a single book.”

–Leonard Sweet, author of Out of the Question . . . Into the Mystery

“In an era in which death often stalks a patient long before overtaking them, this book serves as a manual as well as an inspiration. Not since the work of Elisabeth Kübler-Ross three decades ago has there been such a seminal work in the field.”

–Dr. Robert W. Edgar, National Council of Churches USA

Mrs. Hunter’s Happy Death is more than an engaging and creative treatment of death. It is a ringing affirmation of life lived with faith, love, joy, and hope.”

–Bishop Kenneth L. Carder, Duke University Divinity School

“Happiness in dying is the admixture of joy and contentment, which finds expression in words or gestures of gratitude and praise. It is this final act of faithful living that Fanestil discerns and documents so convincingly from his pastoral experience. Mrs. Hunter’s Happy Death bears witness to happy death as present reality. It testifies not only to a death that has lost its sting, but to a life that is no longer haunted by the prospect of having to die.”

Wallace M. Alston, director, Center of Theological Inquiry

Mrs. Hunter’s Happy Death plumbs the depths of life’s greatest mystery and offers hope through the experience of a woman who had learned the art of dying well. Truly inspirational: a magnificent immersion in the real substance of life and death.”

–Dr. Paul Wesley Chilcote, author of Changed from Glory into Glory
