When the theologian Daniel W. Hardy was given six months to live, he began three series of conversations - with his daughter, Deborah Hardy Ford, his close friend and collaborator the Jewish philosopher Peter Ochs, and his son-in-law the theologian David F. Ford. They ranged through deeply personal reflections in the face of death, accounts of his remarkable experiences during a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, core questions of faith and practice, and a distillation of the unfinished work on the Church that he had been writing for many years. In this book, his three partners give accounts of their conversations with him, together with a short biography. The result is an extraordinary spiritual testimony, above all to what can happen through `allowing the divine to flood in without inhibition', and finding `things and people knit together in the divine abundance'. This is a prophetic vision of full human life with God in the twenty-first century, drawing on the deepest springs of Christian, Jewish, Muslim and secular wisdom.Parting Conversations about God and the Church Daniel W.
