Abstract
This project dealt with the pastor's role in grief and comfort. It included the writing of a handbook to guide pastors in caring for people in times of loss. The author revised the handbook using significant feedback from pastors and funeral directors and supported it with biblical, theological, sociological, and psychological studies. The handbook provides practical advice from the pastor in crises, condensed guidance for funerals, and a primer on grief, including the years following a crisis. An annotated bibliography recommends further resources for the busy pastor. The field work clearly indicated a need for such a handbook.
