2005 Gold Medallion Award finalist! The School of Dying Graces is the deeply honest and beautifully written account of two very different spiritual journeys-the journey of Dr. Richard Felix, then president of Azusa Pacific University, and that of his beloved wife, Vivian, a terminal cancer patient.

In this thought-provoking and inspiring story forged through his wife's victorious dying, Dr. Felix offers profound truths for those who want to live victoriously.
