An ever-present reality in the life of most pastors is preaching funerals. In The Good Funeral: Death, Grief and the Community of Grace (Westminster John Knox), preaching professor Tom Long and funeral director Thomas Lynch explore the current state of the funeral. They deal with the importance of funerals, the relationship between clergy and funeral director, the issue of cremation, counsel for ministering to those in grief and much more. This is a worthwhile book that will help pastors as they consider this important area of pastoral ministry.
