Summary

Keeping the end of our life in mind should shape how we live our lives now. Living life backwards means taking the certainty of our death and letting that inform our life as we progressively journey there as pilgrims in this world. Gibson uses the book of Ecclesiastes to help us consider how the reality of death gives direction to living life in its fullness now and prepares us fully for eternity.
