Talking Points is a series of short books by Vaughan Roberts, designed to help Christians think, talk and relate to others with compassion, conviction and wisdom about todays big issues.
Vaughan Roberts is a popular conference speaker, Rector of St Ebbe's Church, Oxford, and Director of the Proclamation Trust. He is also a member of the executive committee of 9:38 Ministries, and the author of many books, including Talking Points: Transgender, God's Big Picture, and Battles Christians Face.
Every day of my working life I meet people who are facing their own death or that of someone they love. Sadly, without a robust worldview to support them, many perceive the suffering associated with dying as entirely futile or live in denial, placing their confidence in things that cannot save them.In this straightforward little book, Vaughan Roberts correctly, clearly and compassionately identifies many of the issues pressing people towards supporting a change in the law around assisted suicide. He also makes a compelling case for vehemently opposing such a change. He writes, More than anyone else, Christians should be able to think and speak about death and dying with hope, confidence, meaning and purpose. I urge you to give half an hour to reading it and then to ponder all that the gospel has to offer to those who might struggle with this issue even you. -- Dimity Simmons (Clinical Nurse Specialist in Palliative Care)
This is a topic that wont go away. And the voices that argue for assisted suicide are shouting louder. Here is a small, yet timely contribution that offers a clearly argued biblical response. The discussion questions help focus our minds on end of life issues and will prompt thoughtful reflection. We cannot remain silent, and this book encourages us to make a positive contribution to the debate. -- Ruth Coffey (Lecturer in Pastoral Care, Moorlands College)
A clear and valuable summary of important issues surrounding death and assisted dying. Vaughan writes with compassion and pastoral understanding, as well as biblical integrity. -- Dr Kirsten Birkett (Lecturer in ethics and philosophy, Oak Hill Theological College)
A very readable introduction to a subject which will be of growing importance in the years ahead. If assisted dying is legalised there will be implications for every family. Weve seen what has happened in the Netherlands where assisted dying quickly becomes compulsory euthanasia. Its important that we think through this issue ahead of time from a Biblical perspective. This little book helps us do this and rightly focuses on men and women being made in the image of God. -- Colin Hart (Director, The Christian Institute)
Vaughan Roberts has produced a fabulous little book which is very like the Tardis (bigger on the inside that the outside) Compact, constructive and compassionate, there is also a flexible and detailed discussion guide at the end. Best of all, the book is Christocentrichis suffering was not meaningless and neither is ours. -- Ruth Eardley
Assisted Suicide offers a Christian framework for the journey. If you are a Christian then I suggest you read it, preferably with others. If youre not, then I believe you will still benefit by considering the issues raised by Roberts. -- Dave MacDonald
