THIS IS A NEW SMALL BOOK FORMAT EDITION.
Is it really possible to face the final stages of our earthly lives with confidence and without fear?
Mark Ashton describes his own experience of imminent death from inoperable cancer.
Real confidence, he explains, is found in the resurrection of Jesus Christ — an event which, even though it happened 2,000 years ago, has profound implications for us today.

Really inspiring way to help christians handle death,thanks
I bought a copy for myself and one for my mum who knew Mark. Sorry, Mum but I've given both away! Buying more to give to the staff at the nursing home where my dad is to explain to them about the hope we have. Can't recommend highly enough!
This is a great little book. Straight forward and to the point, it shows that, as in his life, Mark uses his death to bring glory to the Lord Jesus whom he loved and served. This short epistle will challenge all who read it to consider again their relationship with Jesus.
When I learned of Mark Ashton’s terminal cancer, a friend working at the church he led (St Andrew the Great in Cambridge) wrote to me, “now we will see the benefits of good theology”. It was a notion that stayed with me, and proved true as Mark boldly preached the Gospel as his death approached. The recounting of his experience is extremely helpful, both in facing the unpleasant realities of health decline, but with clarity around the hope the believer has in our crucified and risen Lord. I leave these in the back of church for people to take away free, and they go with some regularity. They are especially helpful for those who face terminal cancer. The one caution is that Mark was so happy to be with the Lord Jesus that this could be a shock to those who are following the ‘fight heroically to the end’ mode. In this, I think that Mark’s line is provocatively correct and carefully addressed in the booklet. However, I note it to family members that his aim is to encourage looking ahead to heaven not living at all costs.
