Summary
  • This book aims to equip Christians facing end-of-life decisions by simplifying confusing jargon and exploring biblical principles families need in order to navigate the transition from this life to the next
  • Sophisticated technologies have blurred the expanse between life and death. It is often difficult for patients and loved ones to know to how approach the end of life in a dignity-affirming, God-honoring, faith-filled way. Butler aims to equip Christians facing end-of-life decisions. She simplifies confusing jargon, and explores biblical principles families need in order to navigate the transition from this life to the next. -- adapted from back cover
