We Love You, Matty : Meeting Death With Faith (Hardcover) (Tad Dunne)
About this item
"We Love You Matty" is disturbing, enlightening, and challenging. It is disturbing because is begins with the true story of Matty Ventresca. He was born with a severely damaged heart and given up for adoption because he was not expected to live much longer than his teens. It is enlightening because it challenges the reader's spontaneous assumptions about death and an afterlife by looking at death from the points of view of wise men and women of diverse religious traditions. It is challenging to anyone who takes seriously the findings of psychology, social studies, and history. These disciplines force us to find evidence in our everyday lives for our profoundest convictions about the spirit. In particular, Dunne proposes a "Law of Care", which integrates our ordinary experience of mortality with both findings of contemporary disciplines and spiritual faith.
