Accepting death is never easy. But we don’t need religion to find peace, comfort, and solace in the face of death. In her new collection of essays, Comforting Thoughts That Have Nothing To Do With God, prominent atheist author Greta Christina offers secular ways to handle your own mortality and the death of those you love.

Greta Christina is a blogger on FreeThought blogs, an author of a number of atheist and freethinking books, including “Coming Out Atheist” and “Why Are You Atheists So Angry?”. Greta Christina has been writing professionally since 1989, on topics including atheism, sexuality and sex-positivity, LGBT issues, politics, culture, and whatever crosses her mind. Greta Christina’s book Comforting Thoughts That Have Nothing To Do With God is available in print, e-book and audio book format. Find out more at Greta Christina’s Blog at www.freethoughtblogs.com/greta
