Format: Paperback
Although specifically Anglican in perspective, the early chapters offer an understanding of death and its place in human life--including theologically appropriate uses of medical treatment/resources--that will be of value to all Christians (and others interested in what religious traditions have to say). After discussions of mourning, the church's role, and social policy issues like access to health care and the importance of palliative care, the book provides several very helpful resources for use in local parishes. This book by a distinguished panel of clergy, ethicists, physicians, and attorneys (not to imply that any of those categories excludes any of the others!) can serve as a useful resource for all who want to make the end of life a more faithful experience, both for themselves and for others.

This is a really useful book for those who are approaching death and those who are critically ill and don't know what the outcome will be. I'm not Episcopalian, but felt really supported in terms of ethical and spiritual help when my father was dying and I read it.

This book was excellent. It gives a great insight into the beliefs of the Anglican Faith regarding the End of Life Care, and what we, as Anglicans, can do. I knew before I read the book, that the Church allowed us to forgo Life Support Measures, and Extraordinary measures including refusing artificial Nutrition and Hydration.

This book is a great resourch for any member of the Anglican Faith (Episcopal of Church of England, or member of the Anglican Community).

This book is about living and dying faithfully and told from an Anglican perspective. For those of you who don't know, Anglicans are Episcopalians in the U. S. It was recommended to me by someone in my Old Testament class. The reason I bought the book is because there is a liturgy in the back which can be used when removing life support from someone who will pass away not immediately, but soon. There is a service for the Burial of the Dead in the Book of Common Prayer and also for Ministration at the Time of Death. The liturgy in this book would cover the situation when removing life support will lead to death, but not instantly. I bought it because there is such a situation in my family and felt having some prayers and readings at the time would give comfort.
