Until the curse of sin is finally removed at the end of time, suffering will be a part of the human experience, and a large part of that suffering will be walking through the painful reality of death. “Death,” writes Paul Tautges, “provides a natural opportunity not only for ministry to others, but also for personal growth in ministers.” Those who shepherd others through the pain and loss that accompanies death should seek to offer wise and biblical counsel on these precious and painful occasions.

This book is a treasure chest of pastoral theology that will equip you to reach out to those who grieve with the Christ-centered comfort of God rooted in the gospel. The theological foundation espoused here, as well as the numerous practical helps that are included, will help any servant of the Lord to point the hearts and minds of the bereaved to the “man of sorrows” who is “acquainted with grief” (Isaiah 53:3).

Written with the tenderness and understanding of a gentle pastor, this book is a helpful manual for those who guide others through the valley of the shadow of death.

“God is spirit, and his worshippers must worship in spirit and in truth” (John 4:24). The Bible tells us that we are to worship the Lord—that we were created for this purpose. But what is true worship? What does the Bible teach about the right—and the wrong—ways to worship God?

In Gather God’s People, pastors Brian Croft and Jason Adkins unpack a biblical theology of worship, discuss the practical matters of planning a worship service, and offer suggestions and insights on the best way to lead a worship service that honors the Lord. In this book you will learn how to apply biblical doctrine and spirituality to the practice of Christian worship.

Christian worship must be built upon, shaped by, and saturated with the word of God. In this helpful book, Croft and Adkins challenge us to think biblically through every aspect of corporate worship. From theological foundations to practical help, this book will help equip you in leading God’s people.
