Interfaith Meditations on the Life to Come
Formatted exactly like our Book of Comfort and Healing, this collection of reassuring quotations helps people face the next stage in life’s eternal journey. It includes short quotations from ten major religions plus words of wisdom from poets and philosophers throughout the ages and around the world.
Designed to be both comforting and educational, this interfaith compilation will leave you looking forward to the next life. It is appropriate for anyone facing end-of-life issues, either for themselves or a loved one. It is equally interesting for people of any age or disposition who are simply curious about what the world’s great Prophets, poets and philosophers have to say about the soul and the afterlife.
Give this to anyone who is approaching the end of their earthly life, as well as any friends and relatives who are struggling to accept the coming loss.
These beautiful booklets were designed to be given away in hospital chapels, nursing homes, hospices, and funeral homes, but I am sure that Baha’is will find a myriad ways to use them in their teaching work. They contain over 200 short prayers and quotations from ten different religions and dozens of philosophers, writers and poets, with an emphasis on the six major world religions, including Baha’i. Also available in a Gift Edition.
