This comprehensive volume is a must-have resource for every pastor. It contains over 100 sample sermons from preachers across the denominational spectrum, plus a vast array of prayers, scripture readings, and other material for planning and conducting meaningful funeral services. A convenient CD with text files for quick tailoring to specific circumstances is also included.
Life Everlasting is packed with sermons covering a wide range of topics and situations, as well as children's messages, an extensive selection of scripture texts (each with brief "sermon starter" ideas), and lists of appropriate musical repertoire, including hymns, choral music, instrumental music, and music for soloists. With all this in one volume, Life Everlasting provides a complete set of practical tools for making funerals powerfully effective moments of ministry that reaffirm the central Christian message of Jesus Christ's victory over death.
