This short book gives an overview and a starting point for constructive discussion as we seek to live in a world with different values, and love, serve and engage with the questions surrounding euthanasia (Amazon)
Level: Beginner (short)
John Wyatt helps us to navigate the arguments with hearts and heads engaged, and above all with our Bibles open. There are practical and compassionate alternatives to assisted suicide, and as many who have gone before us have found, the end of our lives on this earth may turn out to be a strange and wonderful opportunity for growth and internal healing. (Amazon)
This is a book for those who are facing death. It is also for their relatives, friends and carers. John Wyatt looks at recent trends in dying. He examines the ‘art of dying’, a Christian tradition from the past. We see opportunities for dying well and faithfully, real-world examples of personal growth and instances of reconciliation and personal healing in relationships. On the other hand, there are also challenges to face: the fears and temptations that dying can bring. We learn from Jesus’ example as we focus on his words from the cross. (amazon)
Wyatt examines the issues surrounding the beginning and end of life against the background of current medical-ethical thought. Writing out of a deep conviction that the Bible’s view of our humanness points a way forward, he suggests how Christian healthcare professionals, churches and individuals can respond to today’s challenges and opportunities (amazon)
