What do faithful living and faithful dying mean as we near life’s end? With all the technology and choices available to us today, making decisions about the end of life grows ever more difficult. As a result of all the theological and ethical issues that have arisen around the dying process in recent years, the 72nd General Convention of the Episcopal Church created a task force to study and report on these concerns. This is the report of the End-of-Life Task Force. In it, the Task Force responds to the broad range of theological, ethical, pastoral and policy issues that are generated by the need to provide loving and fitting care at the end of life.

Intended as a teaching document, Faithful Living, Faithful Dying will be useful as a discussion tool for the church, for individuals facing difficult decisions, for professionals, such as clergy and health care providers, and for those who make public policy.

"This book will prove most worthwhile for pastors and parish ministers and ministry committees, a very useful study/discussion guide for small groups, and a helpful tool for chaplains who continue to seek ways to bring the spiritual and prophetic voices into the arenas of healthcare and ethical decision-making." -- Resources Hotline, August 2000
