Death is an uncomfortable subject for many people. That makes funerals difficult at the least, and even worse, confusing and traumatic. How does the Christian understanding of death influence the way we do funerals? Dr. Tim Perry, author of Funerals: For the Care of Souls (recently published by Lexham Press), joins Matt and Derek to liven your understanding of what it means for a Christian to die. They cover numerous practical considerations as well, such as cremation vs. burial, whether and how to eulogize, and which parts of funerals should — and shouldn’t — be customized.
