The Perfect Stranger's Guide to Funerals and Grieving Practices:
A Guide to Etiquette in Other People's Religious Ceremonies

Stuart M. Matlins, Editor


Skylight Publishing and Jewish Lights Publishing continue to provide thought provoking books that reflect insight plus ecumenical or inclusive approaches.

This book provides brief historical and statistical information about the major religious groups in America, funeral/burial practices and grief issues and expressions common to that group. While recognizing that there is great diversity within each denomination and group, the book provides an enormous resource to help people within their own traditions as well as those who are called upon to enter another's story and tradition.

The Rev. Dr. Richard B. Gilbert,
Executive Director, The World Pastoral Care Center
