A Christian Ending: A Handbook for Burial in the Ancient Christian Tradition
Kalistrat Oikumena's review
Sep 22, 2011
This is an excellent book on the Christian tradition of burial. As a matter of fact, this is a book about the way burial has been handled by people for thousands of years and is still handled by most Christian cultures, besides United States and Canada. This is a great book to see that the American funeral industry promotes embalming mostly as a money making mechanism, and that there is no value in neither embalming, not in expensive funeral home services.
