Sacred Dying and Life and Death on Your Own Terms offer practical tools, though vastly different, in their appendixes and other end matter. Anderson includes works from the scriptures and other sacred texts, poetry, readings, and prayers. The selections represent most of the major religious rites of the world. Her bibliography is replete with sound readings on general death and dying, spiritual concerns, rituals, religious traditions, multicultural traditions, the afterlife, practical concerns, ethical issues, music, and the psychology of death. Basta presents an extensive glossary of medical terminology, an advance care planning template complete with specific end-of-life scenarios, and some 350 references.
