"You must let go of all conception of what eternity is, which means letting go of who you are, in order to feel the truth of eternity and its meaning in your life - and in your death."

My Bright Abyss; Meditation of a Modern Believer by Christian Wiman.
A few days ago, the book arrived in my mailbox, but I have not yet read it.  I have thumbed through and found brief passages much to my liking, such as the words quoted above.
Mathew Sitman reviewed the book at The Daily Dish

The New York Times published a  Q&A  between John Williams and the author.

Wow, that's a smoking review from the Daily Dish! Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Mimi - I'm going to order it right away!

I've thumbed through a bit more, and I like what I read.
