Death is something that unites all people. We all encounter its effects at some point, and yet is something we are reluctant to discuss openly. With an emphasis on pastoral care, Eryl Davies looks through the biblical lens at this great taboo, confronting big questions about death, dying and grief.
He speaks from the perspective of an experienced pastor as he wisely addresses practical issues of caring for those who are dying and their families. Perhaps the most profitable aspect of reading this book for me personally is the reminder that it is a privilege to be invited into people’s lives during these most difficult and significant seasons of life and death.

The author is passionate about pastoral care, and his years of ministry put him in an excellent position to offer wise counsel to pastors, chaplains, and church leaders as they come alongside those who walk in the shadow of death. Pastors will find his chapter on preaching funeral services especially helpful.
