Stephen Prothero Thinks Funerals Signal a Huge Culture Shift The Russell Moore Show

    • Christianity

Humans are into rituals. Birth rituals, marriage rituals, naming rituals—each of these and more are integral to the lives of most people. One type of ritual, perhaps, is most common of all: death rituals.
On this episode of The Russell Moore Show, author and professor Stephen Prothero joins Moore to discuss a sweeping change in death rituals: cremation's rapid rise in popularity. They talk about the theological and cultural implications of cremation, important questions to consider about how bodies are treated after death, and the role of the resurrection.
