In addressing many complex moral and legal questions surrounding the euthanasia debate, Robert Wennberg makes good use of a wide range of biblical, theological, philosophical, and historical resources. Speaking from the perspective of the patient, Wennberg explores his subject in a balanced manner, with fairness and objectivity.
—Lewis B. Smedes
"Robert Wennberg has given us a superb book on the utterly sensitive issues of euthanasia and suicide. . . . It is judicious, penetrating, comprehensive, Christianly profound and lucid, and wonderfully readable — a model of ethical writing. This is a book not only for the guild of ethicists but for every physician and for everyone who is going to die one day."
—Daniel Callahan
"Robert Wennberg has written an extraordinarily timely and significant work. The issues of euthanasia and the right to die are as important as any in contemporary medicine. . . . Wennberg brings to these issues a distinctive viewpoint, a great deal of learning, and some very helpful suggestions about the direction of future public policy. He has written a valuable book, and one can only hope that it will be widely read by both experts and the general public."
"Wennberg contemplates 'terminal choices — reflecting on how we should die.' The distinctions between treatment refusal, treatment withdrawal, active euthanasia, and suicide are carefully spelled out here, based on the opinions of medical, religious, and legal experts who have been involved in the euthanasia movement for years. The author . . . outlines the dissenting moral stances on active and passive euthanasia. He reaches back to the Greek and Roman philosophers in tracing his study of social approbation and disapproval and applies such historic thinking to the quandaries created by modern medicine. The author's own views are quietly stated."
