Dying Testimony of Believers and Unbelievers by William C. Brownlee and David Harsha
William Brownlee states: “We should not separate the consistent life of godliness from the dying testimony of the saints.” Included are numerous testimonies of the “cheering prospects” of dying and going to be with Christ. William Brownlee compiled short paragraphs of the last words of many famous people, both unbelievers and saints, both martyred and those dying a natural death. Saints in their last days witness to the hope of a gloriously bright future with exciting experiences of the unspeakable love of God and His presence.
