Death is an inevitable reality. And yet modern man panics at the thought of it and deceives himself that he avoids it... by avoiding thinking about it.
On the contrary, the Christian faith includes an interpretation of death and inspires an attitude of life towards it. The book attempts to summarize this belief, which in fact calls man to face an abysmal mystery. From the Christian point of view, death is a future death, and its abolition will be brought about by the resurrection. And all this, not as wasteful bigotry, but as hope which (may it) vibrate our daily lives and (may) offer orientation to our choices and actions. Because death is not only the decay of the human condition · it is also the disintegration of relationships and justice.
