Comforting Thoughts About Death That Have Nothing to Do with God – Mini-Book Scheduled for Publication in December!

I’ve put together a mini-book collection of my essays about death and mortality, Comforting Thoughts About Death That Have Nothing to Do with God. It’s scheduled for publication in audiobook and ebook in December!

Here’s the description:

If you don’t believe in God or an afterlife — how do you cope with death?

Accepting death is never easy. But we don’t need religion to find peace, comfort, and solace in the face of death. In this mini-collection of essays, prominent atheist author Greta Christina offers secular ways to handle your own mortality and the death of those you love.

Blending intensely personal experience with compassionate, down-to-earth wisdom, Christina (“Coming Out Atheist” and “Why Are You Atheists So Angry?”) explores a variety of naturalistic philosophies of death. She shows how reality can be more comforting than wishful thinking, shatters the myth that there are no atheists in foxholes — and tells how humanism got her through one of the grimmest times of her life.

Alex also did major copy editing work on Coming Out Atheist: How to Do It, How to Help Each Other, and Why. If you’re looking for a graphic designer or a copy editor, I can recommend him unequivocally.

    Will it come out in print sometime?

    imback @ #1: Right now, there are no plans for a print edition. That may happen at some point, but right now, the only plans in place are for ebook and audiobook.

    Death sucks, and it happens to the godly and godless alike, and it’s hard on everybody. But up to now, the US culture’s notions for Coping With Death are pretty much all god-centered stuff. I suspect that there’s a hell of a market for material on god-free grieving (and that said market can only expand as the percentage of Nones grows), so… let’s just say it wouldn’t be a shock if there turns out to be a whole lotta demand for a print edition of this here book.
