A Good Day To Die:

What 276 executions taught a death row chaplain about life

by Carina Bergfeldt

Genre: Christian Biography

He is the last person to touch them before they die.
His face is the last they see before they are executed.
He stands there with one last goal: to get them to heaven.

276 TIMES CHAPLAIN Jim Brazzil has sat in death’s waiting room. He has listened to confessions in the eleventh hour. The last moment of the condemned, when everything bubbles up to the surface and they have to share.

Now Jim is the one dying, ready for his last confession.

THE AWARD-WINNING Swedish journalist Carina Bergfeldt and the American prison pastor start a conversation that ends up changing both their lives. He is older, patient, and wise. She is young, restless, and angry.

IN HIS HOUSE in the Texan countryside, their discussions about death and sorrow, hope, atonement, and love create a magical journey.

How are we supposed to live our lives?
Can one always be forgiving?
And what day is actually a good day to die?


”Brilliant, Bergfeldt! … Touching, uplifting, and awful at the same time.”

"A book to bury yourself in. Whether or not you have a strong faith, it is healing to take part in their conversation."

A touching and disturbing book, but also an experience. Maybe even an awakening.”
