Dying to Live is a key resource for reflective practitioners who want to explore subjects such as death, dying, bereavement and funerals from a theological perspective.
The book engages readers to reflect theologically on issues of loss, grief, healing, the search for meaning and joy. Such theological reflection is vital for the development of good and grounded pastoral practice.
Marian Carter encourages individuals and groups to critically reflect on experience in the light of Christian faith and theology and to become more informed and confident in the practice of ministry in the area of dying, death and the care of the bereaved.
'This is an enormously valuable resource which will have a wide appeal. It will be both a basic text in training and a constant point of reference not only for clergy and lay pastors but for those in other professions, such as nursing, medicine and counselling, who have to work with the dying and the bereaved.'-- Paul Ballard
'This is a comprehensive survey of present funeral practices, the theology of death and historic attitudes towards it. Many Readers are engaged in this ministry, and this book is highly recommended to them and to all clergy and pastoral ministers wishing to give added depth to those they serve. Overall it is a practical workbook, but set against a theological background.' -- John Foxlee, The Reader, Vol 117, No 1
