Summary
Rosen (editor-in-chief of the Journal of Vaishnava Studies and associate editor of Back to Godhead, the magazine of the Hare Krishna movement) presents five chapters in which Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, and Hindu views of death and dying are explained, typically by priests or the equivalent (with the exception of the chapter on Islamic views, which was penned by a professor of Islamic studies). Also included is a concluding chapter in which a former hospice chaplain, now ordained in the theological tradition of Gaudiya Vaishnavism (the tradition followed by the Hare Krishnas), reflects on his experiences at the hospice.
