This book provides both a biblical approach for addressing any bioethical question and an application of that approach to key end-of-life and resource allocation issues. The general approach explains what it means for a Christian bioethics to be God-centered, reality-bounded, and love-impelled. The end-of-life section explores such crucial issues as withholding and withdrawing treatment, suffering, and assisted suicide. The resource allocation section examines the medical, social, and other criteria that determine who receives scarce health care resources. A major case study opens and closes the book.
-Publisher

In today's society, where life and death are increasingly becoming matters of choice, life is on the line. Kilner explores topics such as "active" and "passive" euthanasia, suicide, quality of life, living wills, and the criteria for deciding who will receive access to vital treatments that cannot be provided to all. Contrasts a Biblically-grounded ethics with other ethical approaches commonly employed today.
