In recent years, pressure has come upon North American society to jettison the Christian funeral and opt instead for the services of a funeral business. In the context of such pressures, the church has had a difficult time asserting the promise of the resurrection or even articulating why that promise is crucial at the time of death and burial. Quivik helps the reader explore the deeper meaning of the Christian funeral so that the resources of private businesses in the burial event can be put to their proper use.
