Most of us don't know how to deal with the dying. They don't teach it in seminary and they don't teach it in medical school. Larry Richards has taken a careful look at how the community can express God's love to the dying. He shows how not only medical professionals and the clergy, but families and members of local congregations can communicate Christ's love to the terminally ill. Richards puts death in its cultural perspective and reviews the emotional reactions of the dying person as well as the emotional response of family and community. The disruption of plans, finances, and expectations is discussed, showing how the caring community can respond to these needs. And he demonstrates how we can communicate hope and a basis for living. "Death and the Caring Community...puts death in a biblical setting and reviews the emotional reactions of the dying person, the family and the community." ~ Christian Life Magazine " is a veritable goldmine of information on how to minister to the terminally ill and their families. Over the last few years I have read several books on the subject of dealing with death and dying, and this one is best." ~ Charisma "This book explains common needs and fears of the terminally ill and how to meet those needs with real sensitivity based on 'ten commandments for caring.'" ~ Carpenter's Memo "This book is not just a book on death, but it is really a book on caring." ~ Zondervan Family Bookstores
