Marilyn Johnson was enthralled by the remarkable lives that were marching out of this world - so she sought out the best obits in the English language and the people who spent their lives writing about the dead. She surveyed the darkest corners of Internet chat rooms, and made a pilgrimage to London to savor the most caustic and literate obits of all. Now she leads us on a compelling journey into the cult and culture behind the obituary page and the unusual lives we don't quite appreciate until they're gone.
"A Thorough Pleasure"
Here's a refreshing look at what it means to be a woman of faith in today's world. Based on the Women of Faith seminar, "The Joyful Journey," this collection of anecdotes discusses the obstacles, bumps, and detours women sometimes face along the journey of life. With warmth and humor, the authors encourage us to allow friendship, laughter, and celebration to steer our hearts closer to God. Patsy Clairmont and Barbara Johnson are both best selling authors, Marilyn Meberg is a speaker with several tapes to her name, and Luci Swindoll is the former vice president of public relations for Insight for Living.
