Dr. Thomas Long is one of my professors at Candler. He’s a great teacher, preacher, speaker, and thinker. His newest book (Accompany Them with Singing: The Christian Funeral) however isn’t on any of those things. No, this one is on quite the opposite: death.
I’ll be doing a review (and hopefully a podcast) with him in the coming weeks, but until then, for your sake, check out this op-ed he did for the NYT.
