In Living in the Shadow of Death, Carrie Daws cracks open a difficult topic and handles the reader with such care, you’ll feel like she’s sitting at the kitchen table with you, sharing coffee and compassion while not skimping on biblical truth. This is what I admire most about this book: it is both gracious and uncompromising, full of humanity and wisdom. An excellent resource for anyone grieving or anticipating grief.
