4.0 out of 5 stars an excellent read, June 27, 2011
This review is from: Conduct Gospel-centered Funerals: Applying the gospel at the unique challenges of death (Ministering the Master's Way) (Paperback)
This is part of Day One's `Ministering The Master's Way' series, aimed at being a useful shelf of titles dealing with key aspects of Christian ministry with theological, pastoral and practical elements. It is an excellent addition and the subtitle of `Applying the Gospel at the unique challenges of death' explains the emphasis of the narrative.
It is a concise guide, being a little over 100 pages, but in other ways it is wide ranging with the two authors, Brian Croft and Phil A Newton, both Baptist Church Senior Pastors, dividing up the task of writing on planning, preparing for, preaching at and performing funeral services.
Brief Appendices are added with examples given for funeral sermons, for appropriate eulogies, for the selection of appropriate music and for examples of the Orders of Funeral Service. While this may not be applicable for all, it is nonetheless a useful and fitting addition. This is worthy of reading by ministers and others that are asked at times to conduct funeral and memorial services. The Authors each give a personal Introduction to the book and that itself shows the unique perspective that each has taken in their writing task.
This is both a useful and necessary book. A useful addition to the Minister's or Church reference shelf.
