"When I did my first funeral, I was acutely aware that my college training in no way prepared me for the reality and responsibility involved. I found the book interesting and challenging, and wish I could have read it while at college. I strongly recommend it to anyone who officiates at funerals." Kath Lawson, Vale Baptist Church, Todmorden, Baptist Minister's Journal, April 2005.
"The thoroughness of his examination (...) makes it required and supportive reading." Methodist Recorder.
"A worthwhile litlle resource book for a newly licensed Reader or a newly ordained cleric." New Directions, February 2005.
"Hugh James's book is full of anecdotes, revealing that he not only knows about funerals but he has personal experience of the subject. (...) an excellent book with much to provoke thinking and action." Robert Paterson, Church in Wales Council for Mission and MInistry, Rural Theology, Vol3 part 2. 2005
"This competent and helpful book covers contemporary issues relating to funerals in a very readable manner, and it should be in the hands and minds of all new ministers of any denomination. Experienced clergy will gain much from it as well.(...) The author balances well a mixture of theoretical and theological with the practical. Highly commended." John Lampard, London, Epworth Review, July 2006.
"This is a wise and inspiring book which should become a standard text for student ministers and deacons; experienced practitioners will learn much from it too." Methodist Recorder, January 2007
