Item Description...
The funeral is a genuine means of pastoral care practiced by the church. Many times the funeral is the most momentous means of caring for the bereaved, and often it is the only time when the church has the opportunity to care for family and friends. While many resources on funerals are available to pastors, Gene Fowler offers a perspective of pastoral ministry, a guidebook for ministering and caring throughout the funeral-from pre-funeral to the funeral to post-funeral. He explores what pastors go through at each stage of the funeral process, from when the pastor first learns of the death, to the weeks following the funeral.

Publishers Description
- the funeral as a worship service, including denominational differences - the psychology of ritual - issues of planning the service, such as timing, the eulogy, and family circumstances - bereavement - psychological and theological challenges of facing death - questions of suffering asked by the bereaved - the role of the resurrection in pastoral care - conducting the funeral (including sample funerals) - pastoral care after the funeral

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent resource  Apr 11, 2007
I found this book in my seminary library a day or two after my grandfather died, when I found that I was going to preaching at his funeral. Other books on the subject just seemed either much less comprehenive or much less user-friendly. Fowler does an excellent job in setting forth common expectations family/friends may have for the funeral service and for the pastor him/herself. As a new pastor, this is invaluable to have on your shelf.
