Unresolved issues affect both the living and the dead. This is the message that Anglican ministers Michael Mitton and Russ Parker bring to light. Fearing a slide into spiritualism, they had carefully maintained a hands-off approach to any exploration regarding the dead. Yet as they ministered to many struggling with ongoing hurt, grief, or guilt, their biblical understanding of a Christian's proper attitude toward the dead began to grow. Evangelical Christians, they found, are missing an important avenue of help for the living--and release for the departed. As readers follow the roadmap offered here, firmly grounded in Scripture, they will discover surprising treasure. It comes through the great love and mercy of God--the Father of the living and the dead.
