Cadenhead has thoughtfully included everything a minister needs to prepare for a funeral service---22 messages, pastoral care suggestions, orders of service, Scripture readings, poems, prayers, and benedictions. Scripture from the NKJV.
The plans for this book began several years ago as I personally sought quality resources for my work with grieving families. With such an abundance of homelectical materials in general, I was concerned that there seemed to be very little to offer guidance for the funeral setting. The goal of this book is to provide resource material for a setting that has so much potential for ministry. - From the Preface.
