?The Pastoral Role in Caring for the Dying and Bereaved is a most needed addition to the clergy person's library. This volume provides empowering insight to ministers and bereaved parishioners. . . . It is a comfort to read a major book which affirms the spiritual nature of the clergy's presence as they work with grief, either their own grief or the grief of others.?-Gerentology and Geriatrics Education
