The editors of Sunday Sermons are confident you will agree that these may be the most rewarding and inspiring collections of sermons on death and dying ever published. And, judging from the volume of requests we have been receiving, it is more than likely that you are among those preachers everywhere who sense a deep longing in your own congregation for enlightenment and inspirational support as they ponder the "The Big Why?" in this Age of unbelief.
"Dear God," wrote a little girl named Jane, "Instead of letting people die and having to make new ones, why don't you just keep the ones you've got?"
We wish we could change God's law of death. We try to disguise death. We try to run away and hide from it. We try to ignore it. But there is no way of evading or hiding from the reality that death is inevitable; death is final; death is death.
The famous French writer, Paul Claudel, once said that "Christ did not come to do away with suffering; He did not come to explain it; He came to fill it with His Presence." And that is precisely the burden of these new, rewarding and inspiring volumes of sermons on death and dying. You will discover that these classic sermons are not an attempt to disguise death or to deny the awful fear of death that clutches the human heart. You will discover that these sermons are not an attempt to explain death intellectually (which is only to explain it away). Rather, you will find that these sermons are intended to proclaim the Gospel Truth that Jesus came to fill death with His Presence. The Son of God died a human death and forever filled all human death with His Divine Presence!Each of the three volumes includes seventeen sermons and is available either in print, CD-ROM or print/CD-ROM combo [$29.95 (list:
$34.95)]. Please specify your preference when ordering. If ordering the print and disk combo, the price will be adjusted upon receipt of your order but will not be reflected on your program-generated receipt.
