Death rarely comes with simple answers, for its arrival is always a bold reminder that we live in an imperfect world. Yet there is hope found in the Savior, and in his promise we can be certain that the limitations of this world cannot shackle the power of God.

In the ten funeral homilies of Inhale Comfort, Exhale Hope! Mark Powell exposes the secrets of a broken world, reminding us that in the midst of the mess and the chaos, God's presence delivers a redeeming hope. Powell doesn't believe that the funeral homily should ever be an attempt to lecture or evangelize; rather, he asserts it's a time to remind the brokenhearted to rely on solid scriptural truths found in the words of Jesus:
We will not be left orphaned. Death has no victory. We will be with the Lord forever.

The homilies in this volume will aid the pastor in preparation of funerals for:
• an unexpected death
• an elderly Christian
• the death of someone unknown to the pastor
• a suicide
• a child
and more.
