The call to ministry in the name of Jesus holds many delights, joys, and encouragements. Yet the ministry of comfort""serving those who are dying or affected by death and grief""can be hard, forcing us to come face-to-face with human mortality. These moments in ministry take us into the colder shadows of life, but the world needs faithful men and women to serve the dying and the grieving""no hiding places, no excuses.
Comfort When the Shadow Falls is a reflective, compassionate, and holistic examination of how Christ calls us to minister in the shadow of death. Not only does it consider the biblical foundation for life, death, and hope, it offers seasoned, practical advice on how to serve the dying, come alongside grieving families, lead in funeral service for expected or sudden losses, and minister to the grieving unchurched in our communities.
