Product Description

This powerful book examines the issue of euthanasia (aka "mercy killing", "physician assisted suicide". etc...) from a variety of angles. This group of essays from doctors, nurses and pastors provide an excelent discussion of the issues surounding this topic. Some of the information brought to light is shocking if you have never read about this topic before. Well documented and very well written. Compelling!

Publisher's Description

Twenty leading experts in the bioethics debate here engage matters of dignity and dying from a Christian perspective.The book begins with essays by David Schiedermayer, Arlene Miller, and Gregory Waybright that root the book in the experience of dying itself. This is followed by contributions from Nigel Cameron, John Dunlop, Marsha Fowler, and Allen Verhey on the topics that provide the guiding vision for approaches to dignity and dying: autonomy, death, suffering, and faithfulness.Four of the most pressing end-of-life challenges-forgoing treatment, medical futility, definition of death, and assisted suicide/euthanasia-are then examined by John Kilner, Christopher Hook, Holly Vautier, and Edmund Pellegrino.The next section, with contributions from Ben Mitchell, Jerome Wernow, Arthur Dyck, and Henk Jochemsen, is devoted to investigations of key settings where people have wrestled with these challenges: Nazi Germany; Oregon; North American legal systems; and the Netherlands.Finally, the book concludes with discussions of five potentially constructive alternatives to the premature ending of life: hospice care (by Martha Twaddle); long-term care (by James Thobaben); wise advocacy (by James Reitman); parish nursing (by Norma Small); and congregational ministry (by Dennis Hollinger).
