Finding Wholeness When A Cure Is No Longer PossiblePaperback - 2007
Drawing from experiences from his own life as well as his career as a church leader and pastoral counselor, Zimmerman lays out the emotional and hands-on issues of death and dying and offers concrete ways to deal with each one. It is his hope that those who are dying as well as their loved ones can come together to build their own, unique, custom-fit plan to find healing when a cure is no longer possible. The book's nine chapters are designed to give a framework from which to build a person's healing experience of death. Key elements addressed are: the person who is dying; the caregivers; facing the unpleasant reality of death and grief; healing when a cure is no longer possib healing together; family dysfunction and dying; and facing the impossible. In addition, there are three appendices that offer practical, hands-on help for putting this framework to use: Appendix A: Planning a Funeral or Memorial Service; Appendix B: Christian Resources for Funerals and Memorials; and Appendix C: Popular Resources for Funerals and Memorials.
