Reviews - What do customers think about In Life and in Death: A Pastoral Guide for Funerals?
a MUST have Aug 31, 2009
If you are a pastor and deal at all with death and dying (is there any other kind of pastor?), get this book. Not only is it superb, it is easy to carry around. The perspective is Reformed, but the book draws from a variety of resources. From visits with those approaching death to the funeral service and family care after, this book is a fantastic resource.
