Bodies in motion and at rest : essays by Thomas Lynch( Book )

10 editions published between 2000 and 2015 in English and Chinese and held by 752 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thomas Lynch, called a cross between Garrison Keillor and William Butler Yeats, reminds us not only of how we die but also of how we live." "The essays assembled here explore the human condition at the intersection of millennia, beleaguered by choices and changes, encumbered by mergers and acquisitions, numbed by math and technologies, in search of the meaning of life and time, our lives and times. Lynch tenders life and time - sextons, muckrakers, clergy, caskets, condoms, loved poems, a hated cat, the mall, the Main Street. In an age that seeks to define human experience in retail, high-tech, or pop-psyche terms, these essays speak to the existentials: between human being and ceasing to be, between birth and death, we are bodies in motion and at rest."--Jacket

"Thomas Lynch, 58, is a writer and a poet. He's also a funeral director in a small town in central Michigan where he and his family have cared for the dead -- and the living -- for three generations. For the first time, Lynch agreed to allow cameras inside Lynch & Sons, giving FRONTLINE producers Miri Navasky and Karen O'Connor rare, behind-the-scenes access -- from funeral arrangements to the embalming room -- to the Lynches' world for this film, The Undertaking."--PBS/WGBH website

Walking papers : poems, 1999-2009 by Thomas Lynch( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A decade's worth of poems by one of our most reliable witnesses, National Book Award finalist Thomas Lynch. In his fourth collection of poems, Thomas Lynch attends to flora, fauna, and fellow pilgrims: dead poets and living masters, a former president and his factotums, a sin-eater and inseminator. Faux-bardic and mock-epic, deft at lament and lampoon, fete and feint, Lynch's poems are powerful medicines, tonics for the long haul and home-going."--Publisher's website

Great American Catholic eulogies by Carol DeChant( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eulogies have a long and important history in remembering and commemorating the dead. As Thomas Lynch notes in his Foreword, eulogies are meant "to speak for the ages, to bring homage and appreciation, the final appraisal, the last world and first draft of all future biography." In Great American Catholic Eulogies, Carol DeChant has compiled fifty of the most memorable and instructive eulogies of and by Catholics in America. The eulogies span the American experience, from those who were born before the Declaration of Independence was written to a modern sports legend, from pioneers in social justice, healthcare, and the arts to founders of distinctly American religious order, and from all the varied ethnic cultures who contribute to the great cultural milieu that is the United States

The good funeral : death, grief, and the community of care by Thomas G Long( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Two of the most authoritative voices on the funeral industry come together here in one volume to discuss the current state of the funeral. Through their different lenses -- one as a preacher and one as a funeral director -- Thomas G. Long and Thomas Lynch alternately discuss several challenges facing "the good funeral," including the commercial aspects that have led many to be suspicious of funeral directors, the sometimes tense relationship between pastors and funeral directors, the tendency of modern funerals to exclude the body from the service, and the rapid growth in cremation. The book features forewords from Patrick Lynch, President of the National Funeral Directors Association, and Barbara Brown Taylor, highly praised author and preacher. It is an essential resource for funeral directors, morticians, and pastors, and anyone else interested in current funeral practices. -- Publisher
