Arnold was the senior pastor of the Bruderhof – an international communal movement dedicated to a life of simplicity, service, sharing, and nonviolence. In thirty years as a family counsellor, Arnold advised thousands of couples and individuals, including the terminally ill, veterans, prison inmates, and teenagers. A native of Britain and father of eight grown children, he later lived with his wife Verena in upstate New York.
Overcoming the fear of death
In this hope-filled book, stories of real men and women offer hard-won insights on dealing with uncertainty, loss, grief, and the fear of death. Arnold knows that the biggest challenges in life are the ones that won’t fit the script. All the same, he is convinced that there are plenty of common truths worth holding to the light.
