The gateway we call death
By , Submitted on 2018-12-24

The book is fantastic however I can't just read a book so I got the MP3 version for my phone. Do any know who is reading it? It sounds like president Nelson but I'm unsure?

This book is an absolute masterpiece and one of the hidden gems of our literature. It has given me much comfort and understanding.

Great book for anyone who has lost a loved one

This book is great whether you have lost a loved one or if you just want to learn gospel truths from an apostle. The book addresses not only deaths occurring naturally, like when a person is elderly, but he also talks about suicide, the death of a child and other unexpected deaths. He also addresses spiritual death and how it is different than physical death. He gives great insight as a cardiothoracic surgeon who has seen and dealt with death much during his career. This book helps take away the sting of death, the pain that is brought with the loss of the loved one as we learn and come to understand more fully the Lord's plan for us. I would recommend this book to everyone who has lost a spouse, a child or a friend. It helps you work through the struggle and pain that is left for those who remain after a loved one passes.

"I have come to view death as the gateway to immortality and eternal life...I no longer feel that death is that foe to be feared, instead, I see it as a potential friend that is to be understood."

"Death is a fellow traveler with whom one day each of us will walk. Only the time and the place of that rondevu is not known."

A Blessing of Peace and Comfort

Today, even though we lost our 15 month old five years ago this book still speaks peace to my soul. I know it is true and it is real because Elder Nelson is an apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ. This is not a novel or hearsay or from someone who says they had a death experience who wrote a book about it. Those things leave us unsettled, and can cause even more suffering from the unsure and the unknown.
Elder Nelson speaks truth, the truths of the gospel of Jesus Christ that provide a sure foundation. Jesus Christ is the author of The Great Plan of Salvation and Happiness. Even though our hearts hurt we can be comforted by the Holy Ghost. When we read the truths of the gospel the Holy Ghost can give us specific comfort that we can read again and again. These truths provide an anchor to our soul holding steadfast with a perfect brightness of Hope. We miss him because he is away from us for now. It would be a terrible thing not to miss him. We find great comfort knowing we will be more than able to be see him or be with him. We will raise him in the Millennium. It's such a Great Blessing to look forward to.
