The one experience that is common to all men is the one people most dislike to think about -- death. Even pastors, who are brought face to face with this experience constantly, give too little consideration to the dealing with it, save for the technique and content of the funeral service. The purpose of this ""pastoral aid book"" is to help ministers to give a Christian interpretation of death, both to those who are dying and know it, and to those who must watch their loved ones die. This is done sympathetically and sensitively by two clergymen who have given much thought to the pastoral function of the ministry. To be recommended to Protestant ministers.
