Product Description

Raymond Downing offers a bold critique of western medicine and sees medical care as one of the fallen "principalities and powers" in need of redemption. But Downing's hope lies beyond biomedicine---in biblical healing, especially the healing miracles of Jesus. In conversation with the Bible, Ivan Illich, William Stringfellow, Susan Sontag, and others, Downing revisits how Westerners approach medicine. He sees suffering and healing as essentially spiritual experiences at the roots of death and life.

Endorsements

“In this remarkable book, Downing puts biomedicine under the lens, not of the scientists’ microscope, but of the narrative of the Christian Bible.” —Farr Curlin, MacLean Center for Clinical Medical Ethics, University of Chicago

“In this book, Raymond Downing as physician-educator perceptively lays down a foundation for a critical dialogue among thinking people. Death and Life in America is a wake-up call for followers of Jesus in medicine to become engaged.” —Bill Pearson, Institute of Faith and Medicine
