About the Book:
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.
