Abstract:

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
