Publisher's Description

Is it unscriptural for a Christian to be cremated?




Overview


One of Christianity Today's executive editors, Timothy George, considers grave matters in the Good Question column. Whether motivated by economics, a concern for land use, or the loss of community ties, those who chose cremation over burial made up 25.5 percent of all deceased in 2000. And with the number of cremations expected to rise to 40 percent of all deaths by 2010, it's likely that you know a friend or family member with plans to be cremated after death. Scriptural guidelines regarding burial and cremation, which we'll consider in this study, may soon come in handy.
