Publisher Comments:

Living Well and Dying Faithfully seeks to explore the significance of Christian practices for the process of dying well. Working on the premise that one dies the way one lives, the book explores a variety of different forms of Christian practice which together offer vital modes of end of life care which takes seriously current medical practices while at the same time challenging them in innovative and healing ways.

Synopsis:

Living Well and Dying Faithfully explores how Christian practices - love, prayer, lament, compassion, and so on - can contribute to the process of dying well. Working on the premise that one dies the way one lives, the book is unique in its constructive dialogue between theology and medicine as offering two complementary modes of care. Book jacket.
