So, this book is provided to relieve anyone of the fear that often accompanies the thought of death, and to supply a means to more clearly understand the purpose of it and how we can use it for our higher good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best manual for leaving this world 7 March 2013

I have bought at least 10 copies of this book and given them to friends. And one friend I sent a copy of this book to then ordered 6 or 8 for her friends. I have been a hospice volunteer, and seen more than a couple of friends die. Most people are not emtionally, mentally or spiritually prepared for this journey, and yet every one of us, and everyone we know, must take it. Makes sense to get ready. Most people are afraid of death even if they claim not to be.

Knapp covers such topics as tying up loose ends of financial and practical matters (in brief), healing old wounds or grievances, detaching from the responsiblilties, attachments and things of the world we cannot take with us (but many people cling to nonetheless), and devolping inner spiritual peace and comfort. He uses quotes from many traditions so anyone can gain benefit from this book not matter what their beliefs. In fact, the quotes alone from ancient books of wisdom are helpful for anyone, dying soon or not. He also has much useful information for caretakers, friends and relatives of those soon to die.

I lent this book to a friend who was slowly dying of liver failure, and she found great comfort and wisdom, and told me it helped her tremendously. When she could no longer read much, I read it aloud to her, and she kept it on her bed. What better testimony than thi?

This book will provide a compact preview of the death process for all those nearing that transition, as well as a wake up call for the rest of us who still have ample time to prepare fully.

5.0 out of 5 stars BOOK REVIEW by METAPHYSICAL REVIEWS 17 April 2000
By Richard Fuller - Published on Amazon.com
FACING DEATH is well-written, with an economy of words and a plethora of wisdom. Stephen Knapp has given us a book to give to people about to make the transition. In this reviewer's opinion though, FACING DEATH is a must-read for us, now...to prepare for the ultimate adventure. Without a doubt, one of the most misunderstood and feared aspects of life is death. In our Western culture, we generally do not think of death (we're afraid to?) until the time comes for someone close...or our time is near. Author and seer Stephen Knapp points out that if we allow ourselves to recognize that death is a part of life...life becomes different...more valuable and more meaningful. For instance, we'd have fewer quarrels, we'd be more giving and understanding, and we'd appreciate many things that we now take for granted. FACING DEATH, therefore, is a must-read to diminish our fears of death while expanding the pleasures of life. Stephen Knapp offers both sage advice as well as spiritual insight. "Each life is meant for us to learn more about ourselves, and about who we are." Nearing death, "...let go and let God put you where you will make the most progress." FACING DEATH teaches that, "...death is essentially the shedding of the body." What remains, forever, is the soul. Thus, "...death can be looked at as a great opportunity...the ultimate healing...the start of a [life] someplace else." Stephen Knapp divines that, "Preparing for death is looking into the truth of yourself. By doing this you also learn how to live." If we start preparing sooner, we learn, we have a greater opportunity to appreciate our life, and attain a high level of consciousness for the final transition.
