This well-researched and comprehensive overview of the history, issues and practical effects of euthanasia is presented with both authority and compassion. It is highly recommended to all who seek to understand and participate in the public debate that is ongoing both in New Zealand and elsewhere and those who seek pastorally sensitive approaches when working with families and communities. This book has the full endorsement of Most Rev. Bishop Patrick Dunn, Bishop of Auckland.
Life is full of blessings, challenges and opportunities. Even dying brings its own unique blessings, challenges and opportunities. ‘Dying well’ is as important as reaching our potential at school and at work, or finding happiness and fulfilment within our families and with our friends. The work of dying well often involves the healing and/or deepening of relationship.
