AIDS: The Ultimate Challenge, Kubler-Ross, Elisabeth
1 AIDS: The Ultimate Challenge Kubler-Ross, Elisabeth
0684839407 / 9780684839400 Good. 
Paperback. Softcover reprint 1997 Scribner. Has REMAINDER MARK. Light store shelfwear. Unread; very clean; no creases; pages bright; binding tight. Language: English. 'Kubler-Ross, the celebrated thanatologist, now joins the chorus of voices waging war with the AIDS epidemic. While her tone is shrill and full of indignation toward those who respond to AIDS with fear or prejudice, the book is nevertheless compelling. Drawing on her conversations with patients, families, and caregivers, the author covers the wide range of emotions triggered by the virus. Kubler-Ross, as in On Death and Dying and other previous works, makes a strong case for human compassion. She sees AIDS as an opportunity for us all to learn the ultimate lesson, the lesson of unconditional love.'--Rev. David A. Buehler, Library Journal, 1988.

2 Finding Peace Through Pain: The True Story of a Journey into Joy  Bosco, Antoinette
0345396464 / 9780345396464 Very Good.  
Paperback. 1st softcover edition 1995 Ballantine. Very clean, unmarked, uncreased. Only light wear. 145pp, list of Resources. Language: English. Former title: The Pummeled Heart. 'Antoinette Bosco is a mother and grandmother who has lived through every woman's worst nightmares: an incapacitated spouse, the suicide and murder of 2 of her 6 children, the blinding and grave illness of 2 others. As the blows kept coming, this devout Catholic found herself asking, God, where are you taking me? When is enough enough? Yet to meet Antoinette Bosco is to be in the presence of someone profoundly at peace with herself and her world. Her serenity and her joy in life are palpable. Now, drawing on her own suffering and the pain of the many people she has interviewed, journalist Antoinette Bosco shares with us the spiritual truths that illumined her path in the darkest days of her tribulations. No one else could have written this compelling true story of a life besieged but never broken, and of the wisdom gained by passing through such tests, coming closer to God because of them.'--Mitch Finley.

Start the Conversation: The Book About Death You Were Hoping to Find , Stone, Ganga
3 Start the Conversation: The Book About Death You Were Hoping to Find  Stone, Ganga
0756762065 / 9780756762063 Like New.  
Hardcover. Stated 1st printing HARDCOVER with dustjacket 1996 Diane Publishing. Never read: superclean; no marks; pages bright; binding tight. Only light shelfwear. Gift-giving condition. 185pp. Language: English. 'After 2 years in an ashram in India, Stone felt called to work with the dying. Out of that calling have come a meals-on-wheels program for AIDS patients, workshops for the terminally ill and those involved with the dying, and now this book. Named after the workshops, it strives to convince us of 2 primary propositions: we are not annihilated by death, and grief--that is, the psychologically and often physically debilitating reaction to a loved one's death--is neither necessary nor beneficial. Physical death is certain, Stone bluntly reminds us, but souls are eternal. Meditation is especially useful for realizing the soul's timelessness, she says, and once one accepts the soul's perdurability, there is no reason for grief--sadness, yes, but not the confusion and misery of extreme mourning. The most striking thing about Stone's very accessible, jargon-free effort is that it presents Christian understandings of eternal life and of consolation very well with virtually no God-talk.'--Ray Olson, Booklist.
