Grief, Death, Eternal Life Explored in New Catholic Title by Pauline Books & Media

BOSTON, MA — Pauline Books & Media is pleased to announce the release of Life Everlasting: The Mystery and the Promise by best-selling author Monsignor J. Brian Bransfield.

Acknowledging the faith-shaking effects of grief, Bransfield faces the eternal question of death through a personal lens, looking towards the death and resurrection of Jesus for answers. The author follows the threads that run through our lives and the gospels, deciphering the very clues that shed light on this unsettling question.

“When our loved ones die, we look at the world differently. We look at our faith differently,” says Bransfield in the introduction to this narrative on the journey we all must eventually face.

Life Everlasting offers:

  • Meditative text as a springboard for deeper reflection and prayer
  • Help for those who minister to the grieving
  • Explores the four “last things”

Executive Producers of The Bible, Son of God and A.D.: The Bible Continues, Roma Downey and Mark Burnett, call this book an “inspiring work”.

Executive Vice President of Life Teen International and best-selling Catholic author, Mark Hart, calls Bransfield’s work, “superb storytelling”—“ This book not only reminds us of life’s origin, but its purpose, its meaning and its goal…it will help countless souls navigate the often painful waters of life (and death).”

Msgr. Bransfield serves as the Associate General Secretary at the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops in Washington, D.C. He is as an adjunct professor of moral theology on the Pontifical Faculty of the Immaculate Conception at the Dominican House of Studies and at the Canon Law School of the Catholic University of America, both located in Washington, D.C.

He is the author of three additional titles with Pauline Books & Media: The Human Person: According to John Paul II (Pauline Books & Media, 2010), Living the Beatitudes: A Journey to Life in Christ, and Meeting Jesus Christ: Meditations on the Word (Pauline Books & Media, 2013).
