Will provide even experienced clergy with more tools to help families navigate end-of-life issues and a graceful death. It will give guidance to ministers who are still struggling with personal, professional, and spiritual growth around end-of-life issues. And, for those in pastoral training, it offers the foundational understanding about end-of-life issues so they can put their own issues around death and dying aside to assist others in charting their own course through life's end.
