P 159 Preaching at Funerals: How to Embed the Gospel in Funeral Ministry (2019)


While the wider cultural landscape has changed markedly in recent years, the role of the Christian minister at funerals continues to be of great significance. 

This fully updated guide contains revised best-practice advice on the 2001 first edition. It explores the challenges and opportunities of preaching at funerals in the context of common responses to death, the biblical hope of resurrection and the liturgical setting of the Common Worship service. With comments on possible readings and advice on handling the different elements, it remains an essential handbook for this ministry.
