Shows how medicine and Christian practice together can enhance the well-being of those who are dying
^^Living Well and Dying Faithfully explores ways in which Christian practices - the practice of 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 two complementary modes of healing.


^^"An extraordinary book. These essays are filled with wisdom because they have been written by those who have learned how to die by either being with the dying or listening to those who have learned to listen to the dying." ^Stanley Hauerwas (from the foreword) ^^
