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 sermon material for planning and conducting meaningful funeral services.

The sermons cover a wide range of topics, including:

Dealing with troubling questions about God raised by those who have suffered
Offering solace to the loved ones of those who have died suddenly and unexpectedly
Demonstrating how the image of God is present even in difficult and unsavory people
Celebrating a variety of distinctive ''characters''
Addressing the difficult issues associated with those who have committed suicide
Witnessing the Christian message of salvation to the unchurched
Life Everlasting is also packed with other valuable resources:
Children's messages that help young people grasp the meaning of death
Prayers and other liturgical material, including calls to worship and responsive scripture readings
An extensive selection of scripture texts, each with brief ''sermon starter'' ideas
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.
