When a man stands alone . . . 

Every man is born and every man dies. None is born conscious of the significance of this birth in time, and most are unaware of the significance of this death. Some do have an intimation of the meaning of dying, and a few achieve an intensified relationship to the purpose behind the final life experience. Even fewer have ever chronicled the ways by which they came to that place, where death seemed the ultimate step in self-fulfilment. This book is therefore a rare account, coming from a man, who died at the age of 47 of cancer, but who gave the last year of his life to a heightening and hastening of his search for all the seasons of God - a man who came, at the end, to where he could say yes to both sides of the paradoxes of Ecclesiastes.

From the beginning of the book:

" For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep and a time to cast away; a time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace. "
