What About Cremation
A Christian Perspective
John J. Davis
The nature, history, and contemporary utilization of cremation is examined against the background of the Bible in order to form guidelines for Christian thought and practice. In a very readable and well-balanced fashion, the author deals with the arguments for and against cremation of the dead.
