The Life and Death Dilemma
Joni Eareckson Tada
You might be standing by the bedside of an ill or dying family member, facing agonizing
moral and medical choices. Or you may be struggling with a disability, asking questions
that seem to have no answers. Where can you find practical encouragement and realistic
perspective to help you make the best decisions? Joni Eareckson Tada, herself a quadriplegic,
helps you and your family tackle the hard questions about death, illness, and suffering, such
as: * Is it ever right to choose death, either for yourself or a suffering loved one? * How
can I make the best decisions in a medical crisis? * Where is God in the unanswerable
questions? * Are our rights being protected? Stories of real people who have faced
life-and-death decisions, practical suggestions for coping in crisis, and scriptural
insight on the meaning of life help you find hope and answers in difficult situations.
From the legal facts to the human factor, Joni brings a unique perspective on what makes
life worth living and how to make health care choices with dignity, wisdom, and compassion.
