The Weekly Hit List: January 11, 2013

Speaking of Dying

Speaking of Dying by Fred Craddock, Dale Goldsmith, and Joy V. Goldsmith was reviewed by Ministry Matters.

Speaking of Dying begins with a negative critique of both the American Protestant church and the culture in which we are embedded.

“As the book progresses, however, a clear and hopeful narrative comes into view—one in which life begins, continues, and finally ends in the context of sacrament.

“Craddock, Goldsmith, and Goldsmith turn personal experience and careful research into an eminently readable book on a vitally important subject.”
