Author(s): Church of England Board for Social Responsibility, Dame Cicely Saunders
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.
