"Ron DelBene has written a very moving, simple, and extremely practical book for all those who wonder how to be present to sick and dying people. . . . This 'breath prayer' emerging from the desire of the dying person, allows for a very intimate, personal, spiritual communion when we often feel hopeless and powerless.
"Every day in every place there are people who need the wisdom of Ron DelBene to cope with the experience of dying and death."
--Henri J.M. Nouwen
"Ron DelBene asks: are we really a Resurrection People? There is much around us that seduces us into believing that we have finally conquered death. To be a Resurrection People is to accept death--and life! DelBene's question goes to the heart of ministering with the sick and the dying. And, it goes to the very heart of contemporary Christian theology.
"Into the Light is more than a how-to book; it is a window into the spirituality of the Resurrection Event. . . . I was deeply touched by Into the Light, and I believe that the faith and healing ministry of every reader will be enlightened and enriched."
--Edmond Lee Browning, Former Presiding Bishop, The Episcopal Church
"I sat down intending to read only a chapter. I did not leave my chair until I had read the entire book. . . . There is an honest look at pain, suffering, and death and a clear statement of the Christian's confidence in the risen Christ. The entire book is a skillful weaving of personal story and Christian tradition into a very readable and enormously helpful resource."
--Rueben P. Job, Bishop, Iowa Area, The United Methodist Church
