4.0 out of 5 stars Very general, broad-range book for pastors or ministers 19 Feb 2007
By book_review_grrl - Published on
This volume is intended primarily for new Christian ministers or pastors. It tries to cover a lot of ground in a single book, and I think it would have been better to cover some topics separately. Funerals, weddings, and church business are all briefly covered, but each of these topics could fill an entire book. In my opinion, the most useful portion is the section on Funerals, which is rarely covered elsewhere.

Table of Contents:

Notes on Conducting a Funeral

Funeral Service for General Purposes

Funeral Service for a Child

Funeral Service for a Young Man

Funeral Service for a Young Woman

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Manual for Last Minute Calls... 30 Jun 2009
By Laura Lewis - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
While not a thoroughly in-depth book, this little manual may be able to help any pastor, deacon, bishop, or common Christian with a sermon on many particular topics when the speaker does not know how or where to start. It is a good, inexpensive manual to have on your shelf that may give you some excellent ideas in expounding upon God's Word.

This is a great help for pastors. It is also a very nice looking and well made book that can be used during special cerimonies and services. Well worth the price.
