Dying to Live brings a message of hope in the face of certain medical death and disenchantment. Mumford's personal experiences of near death are eloquently captured by St. Paul, who said, "I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven. Whether it was in the body or out of the body I do not know-God knows."
