Quick Overview

Sensitive and practical reflections on funeral practice

At the heart of this book is the importance of balancing the Christian gospel with the hopes and wishes of a grieving family, even if these wishes do not entirely fit with the minister’s personal theology.

In Heaven’s Morning Breaks, Jeremy Brooks examines the changes in funeral practice over the last 20 years before looking at issues such as cremation versus burial, life after death and difficult funeral services - where suicide or the death of a child may be a factor, or where mourners are few.

With a chapter on pastoral care for the bereaved as well as resource sections containing suggested orders of service, hymns, songs, prayers and readings, this is a helpful addition to literature on funerals for those involved in ministry.

An easy to read, intelligent book reflecting and commenting upon the facts, thoughts, feelings and observations of the time experienced at the end of peoples' lives. Don't be put off by the subject matter; it's genuinely uplifting. (Posted on 15/10/2013)
