Is There a Christian Case for Assisted Dying : Voluntary Euthanasia Reassessed

Posted on 11 February 2013 Gavin Glenn

Issues surrounding euthanasia and assisted dying continue to hit the headlines with strong feelings on both sides. In Is There a Christian Case for Assisted Dying? Paul Badham makes a significant and controversial contribution to this important and current debate.

‘Both believers and non-believers will benefit greatly from this consistently reasonable and compassionate account of the euthanasia debate.’
Mary Warnock, philosopher

‘Badham takes a specifically Christian approach and gives not an apologetic, but a constructive answer. I hope that this book will be intensively and honestly discussed.’
Hans Küng, Emeritus Professor of Ecumenical Theology, University of Tubingen

‘Although I do not agree with Professor Badham’s conclusion. . . his book is a serious and important contribution to a serious and important debate.’
The Revd Dr John Polkinghorne, KBE, FRS

‘The book is a triumph for liberal, relevant, compassionate, readable theology.’
Adrian Thatcher, Research Professor in Applied Theology, University of Exeter

The Revd Dr Paul Badham is Professor of Theology and Religious Studies at the University of Wales, Lampeter, where for the past twenty-five years he has directed an MA programme in Death and Immortality. He is a Vice-President of the Modern Churchpeople’s Union and a Patron of Dignity in Dying (formerly the Voluntary Euthanasia Society).
