Finding Angels in Boulders: An Interfaith Discussion on Dying and Death

Finding Angels in Boulders: An Interfaith Discussion on Dying and Death

by Bruce Gordon Epperly, Lewis D. Solomon




Authentic spirituality embraces all of life, including death. Weaving together faith and practice, Bruce Epperly and Lewis Solomon show us how progressive Judaism and Christianity provide tools for transformation and prescriptions for wholeness. These transformative religious practices of ancient wisdom and contemplation, joined with contemporary global spirituality, enable grieving persons to experience comfort, forgiveness, and hope for the future. They also provide spiritual healing when a physical cure is no longer possible.

Through theological reflection, spiritual practices, stories from everyday life, and Jewish and Christian wisdom, Epperly and Solomon inspire progressive Christians and Jews to affirm life in the midst of death and strength amid vulnerability. Spiritual healing, the authors say, does not depend on our efforts, but on our openness to the Holy One whose compassion brings hope and possibility.
