Publisher's Description

When is it okay to let go of the terminally ill?


Overview


At issue today is when life ends. At first glance, the Christian s high view of life may indicate that any and all steps should be taken to keep a terminally ill person alive as long as possible. But is this really the most loving, humane, and godly thing to do? How might Christians have been influenced by a secular view of death?
