Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Hauerwas, professor of ethics at Duke's Divinity School and an authority on biomedical ethics, has written a consensus-shattering volume. Arguing forcefully for a radical reexamination of the assumptions of personal freedom, self-determination, and the utilitarian "bottom line" that pervade current bioethical decision making, he demonstrates how profoundly medicine and theology are intertwined when we address the human experiences of mortality, tragedy, and finitude. Hauerwas's own bottom line is clear: "a humane medicine is impossible to sustain in a society which lacks the moral capacity to care for the mentally handicapped." Highly recommended for libraries in medicine, nursing, theology, philosophy, and ethics. Rev . David A. Buehler, Charlton Memorial Hosp., Fall River, Mass.

The book does a wonderful job putting in proper perspective what the role of a chaplain, pastor or minister as he or she enters into poeple's crisis moment.

Stanley Hauerwas presents a thoughtful and theologically sound examination of health and suffering. This is a "must read" for anyone doing Christian ministry from chaplaincy to the parish.
