Product description
In 1974 the Church of England published a groundbreaking report on euthanasia. Considered by many Christians to be one of the key texts on the subject, it has now been revised and updated with important new additions and commentaries. On Dying Well investigates moral, theological, clinical and legal arguments for and against voluntary euthanasia. It presents arguments on both sides and considers real cases, thereby locating the issues in their clinical context. The report is both intellectually robust and sensitive to the realities of death. On Dying Well is, therefore, as much a contribution to the debate on euthanasia today as it was 25 years ago. The report, while recognising that there may be exceptional cases demanding special decisions, nevertheless concludes that the case for legalising voluntary euthanasia is not one that can be supported. The conclusions are satisfactory because they emerge from careful examination of the issues and reasoned arguments. Anyone who is concerned about euthanasia, or who would like to deepen their own reflections on the subject, should read On Dying Well.

From a moral standpoint it said what it needed to say, but I was very disappointed by the lack of Biblical references in the book (there are two) on such an important and relevant topic. As the leading Church in England, one expects the spiritual leadership to address the issues in both a moral and Biblical way. Contrast 'On Dying Well' with Paul Badham's book, 'Is there a Christian Case for Assisted Dying?' and one can readily see the differences. I accept that there should not be arguments on the meaning of scripture about the issue, as is the case in other areas, but nevertheless, there should be more discussion and reliance on scripture, rather then just anodyne rhetoric arguments on moralistic grounds. I am left thinking that I had wasted my money.
