Written for seminarians and mortuary students, clergy and funeral directors, it is a study of the funeral practices which the authors claim “have gone ritually astray.” They suggest ways the culture might reclaim some of the most useful and human ceremonial responses to a death in the family.  THE GOOD FUNERAL – Death, Grief and the Community of Care looks at Last Things and matters mortuary, it was launched at the National Funeral Directors annual convention in Austin Texas on October 21, 2013.
