Funerals Without God

Funerals Without God (eBook)

New 7th Edition!  A major update of our best-selling practical guide to humanist and non-religious funerals, including a selection of poetry and prose readings.‘This booklet is clear, concise, thorough, exhaustive and wise. It is also very moving. One cannot think of the significance of a humanist death without thinking about the significance of a humanist life, and I gradually found, beneath the facts and practical suggestions, a pretty good account of what it is to be a humanist, and how much more there is to it than just not believing in God.”

David Nobbs, Author – The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin
