Euthanasia, Suicide, and Despair: Can the Bible Help?
Guidance When Faced with Ethical Dilemmas
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"Dr. Lowis says the timeless wisdom of past ages can speak to our modern dilemmas. He shows there are no easy answers, but carefully setting out the issues, he puts the reader in a position to better understand and grapple with the subject for themselves. This highly readable book will appeal to a wide spectrum of readers, including students of theology and medicine and those with a pastoral concern looking to the Bible for help."
--Peter Cansfield, Former Special Lecturer and Consultant in Public Health Medicine
"Dr Michael J. Lowis poses the question 'What would we do if someone very close to us had a terminal illness, and pleaded with us to find a way to help them end their life so that they could be at peace?' This book conducts a balanced enquiry into how the Bible, whether interpreted literally or allegorically, assists with those difficult moral and ethical questions. A most thought-provoking read for everyone!"
--Ross W. Prior, Professor, University of Wolverhampton, UK
