Are you afraid of death, are you even more afraid to talk with someone about death? What do you as a Christian caregiver have to offer that is different from others? The Indispensable Guide to End-of-Life Care focuses on the dimensions of end-of-life pastoral care for those about to enter caregiving ministry. Sharyl Peterson explores the relational journey that you will go through when ministering to those who are facing end-of-life situations, and she guides you on the fundamental elements that you must ascertain and apply when counseling those who are losing or have lost loved ones.
