Product description

Product Description

What comfort can an agnostic give people who are suffering or dying?

Looking for more meaning in his work, Johannes Klabbers gave up a tenured academic position to spend his days caring for the sick and dying. He trained as a secular pastoral carer in a cancer hospital, and from the patients there he learned how simply talking and listening can provide comfort: from chatting about the football to discussing life’s meaning and how one prepares for death. 

I Am Here is a frank, moving, and sometimes funny record of his encounters. It gives an unforgettable insight into the variety of ways people cope with suffering, and suggests how we can support them — through caring, through conversation, and by acknowledging that although we may not be able to answer all of life’s questions, we can face them together. From one of the saddest places comes this powerful affirmation of our capacity for humane care.

This is such a delight - deep issues, personal and yet not soppy. It was such a good read. Like talking to a dear friend. this is one author I'd love to meet. Thankyou for writing about unconventional pastoral care. It's someone like you I'd like to have as my worker if I ever needed it.
