A comforting bereavement gift book, consisting of a short sermon from Canon Henry Scott Holland.
The message of comfort contained in this little book is one of the most inspired statements of hope and belief ever written. Millions of bereaved people over the years have drawn from it serenity, acceptance and the ability to face life after the death of a loved one, and for those wishing to convey sympathy but unable to find the right words, it says it all.
A consoling book offering a balance between keeping faith while remembering the bereaved as they were in life, Death is Nothing At All is a perfect giftbook for anyone who has recently lost a loved one, whether they are religious or not.
Canon Henry Scott Holland was born in 1847 and educated at Balliol College, Oxford. From 1884 to 1911 he was Canon of St. Paul's Cathedral, thereafter becoming Regius Professor of Divinity in the University of Oxford. He also held several honorary posts at Truro Cathedral.
