Publisher's Description

Western medicine is not only a science that has relieved much suffering in the world; it is also a philosophy that stands contrary to biblical Christianity. Medical science can offer physical help, but it cannot answer the most profound questions asked by the suffering and dying: Why am I sick? Why did I contract this disease? Why am I dying? Only the Bible offers adequate and satisfying answers to such questions. Author Christopher Bogosh navigates the waters of modern medical practice and its underlying assumptions and presents biblically informed answers to questions about illness, disease, death, and dying. Here is valuable guidance for pastors on becoming part of the healthcare team, counseling those facing the end of life, and making choices about medical care. Indeed, this book provides all Christians with help and hope that is based in sound theology and biblical ethics. Christopher W. Bogosh, RN, B.Th. is the Director of Clinical Services and Education for Christian Community Care, an alternative end of life care, consultative, advocacy, and educational ministry. Rev. Bogosh has written several booklets on end of life issues, a published article, and most recently has authored The Physiology of Hope: How People Persevere in the Face of Death. Chris, his wife Robin, and son Noah reside in Yulee, Florida.
