The new commandments according to Rethinking Life and Death.
--If you must take human life, take responsibility for the consequences of your decisions.
--All human life is not of equal worth; treat beings in accordance to the ethical situation at hand.
--Respect a person's desire to live or die.
A profound and provocative work, Rethinking Life and Death, in the tradition of Aldous Huxley's Brave New World, examines the ethical dilemmas that confront us as we near the twenty-first century.

For most Christian believers, what is truly remarkable and important about Jesus is not his life, but his resurrection from the dead. They may believe that Jesus' death is significant not as the end of Jesus' life, but as the first half of the saving event that comprises the Christian gospel: the death and resurrection of Jesus. For Christians, this great divine cosmic event, around which all of human history pivots, is what saves us from our sins. Apart from this, the death of Jesus would simply be the meaningless end to an interesting but insignificant life. In this lively and provocative work, Patterson reconstructs early Christian assessments of Jesus' significance and also questions basic assumptions about modern interpretations of Jesus' death. He emphasizes the importance of Jesus' life in relation to his death and resurrection. And he challenges individualistic notions of how Jesus' death relates to Christian ethics.

In Surprised by Hope: Rethinking Heaven, the Resurrection, and the Mission of the Church, top-selling author and Anglican bishop, N.T. Wright tackles the biblical question of what happens after we die and shows how most Christians get it wrong. We do not “go to” heaven; we are resurrected and heaven comes down to earth--a difference that makes all of the difference to how we live on earth. Following N.T. Wright’s resonant exploration of a life of faith in Simply Christian, the award-winning author whom Newsweek calls “the world’s leading New Testament scholar” takes on one of life’s most controversial topics, a matter of life, death, spirituality, and survival for everyone living in the world today.

With the aspiration for a long life now achievable for many individuals, the status of old age as a distinct social position has become problematic. In this radical re-examination of the nature of old age, Paul Higgs and Chris Gilleard reveal the emergence of a 'fourth age' that embodies the most feared and marginalised aspects of old age, conceptually linked to and yet distinct from traditional models of old age.

Inspired by the authors' ground-breaking work on the third and fourth age and supported by extensive sociological, medical and historical research, Rethinking Old Age offers a unique and timely analysis of the fourth age as a 'social imaginary' that is shaped and maintained by the social, cultural and political discourses and practices that divide later life. It stands as a significant resource for students, academics and practitioners of Sociology, Ageing Studies, Gerontology, Social Policy, Health Studies, Social Work and Nursing.

Una mujer yace en coma irreversible en un hospital. Su cerebro está dañado, pero su corazón sigue latiendo y, además, está embarazada. Unos pocos meses más tarde, la ayuda médica permite que dé a luz un saludable bebé. Un niño entra en coma tras golpearse en la cabeza mientras juega a fútbol. Meses después, los padres piden que le retiren el respirador, pero el hospital se niega. Un día, el padre amenaza al personal con una pistola, desenchufa el aparato y permanece junto al chico hasta que muere. Una mujer de setenta años sufre un cáncer incurable, por lo que le pide al médico que termine con su vida. Finalmente, este último le inyecta cloruro de potasio para que muera. Sin embargo, y aunque es sometido a juicio por asesinato, ni se le encarcela ni se le expulsa del colegio de médicos. Estos tres ejemplos certifican que nuestras ideas más tradicionales acerca de la vida y de la muerte están en crisis. En un mundo de respiradores y de embriones conservados durante años en nitrógeno líquido, ya no podemos seguir considerando la vida humana como la base inamovible de nuestros puntos de vista éticos. En este controvertido y polémico libro, Peter Singer arguye que no seremos capaces de abordar convenientemente temas básicos como la muerte, el aborto, la eutanasia o los derechos de los animales hasta que nos olvidemos de la vieja moral y construyamos una nueva fundamentada en la compasión y el sentido común.

Compassionate Jesus Rethinking The Christian S Approach To Modern Medicine

In an age of scientific advancement and specialization, many Christians turn to medical professionals to direct them in stewardship of their bodies. While in many ways the advancements of medical science are a blessing, they are also largely driven by a secular mindset that, though it appears compassionate and to proclaim hope, is actually often subversive of genuine compassion and our hope in Christ.

In 'Compassionate Jesus', Christopher Bogosh calls Christians to examine the pervasive “prolong life at all costs” mentality against biblical principles of care and compassion that are rooted in Christ. This is a call to enter into medical situations trusting in God’s sovereign care and the power of prayer. It is hoped that this book will begin a long-needed discussion among Christians about how we relate to modern medicine, encouraging us to allow the gospel to inform the way we engage the healthcare system.

Christopher W. Bogosh preaches and teaches regularly at New Hope Baptist Church in Saint Marys, Georgia, where he is a member. He is also a registered nurse at Community Hospice of Northeast Florida, serving as a clinical hospice liaison for Baptist Hospital and the surrounding community. Chris possesses a unique blend of medical and theological training, enabling him to engage the highly technical world of medical science while maintaining fidelity to the Scriptures.

“A growing number of Christians today are rethinking their approach to health and medical science, seeking a healthier and more faithful engagement. Christopher Bogosh is an important voice in that movement, and this book, Compassionate Jesus, offers much to consider and reconsider. — Rob Moll, author of The Art of Dying and Christianity Today editor-at-large

“My experience as a practicing physician and instructor of medical students at Michigan State University leads me to agree with Christopher Bogosh that modern medicine is not purely objective. While our secular medical educators acknowledge a spiritual component to the human body, they often relegate it to the realm of delusional thinking and do not give it much credibility as they instruct our future doctors. One of the areas largely impacted by this secular mindset is end-of-life care, and it is perhaps here that Bogosh’s sound biblical assessment is most important. Compassionate Jesus provides a necessary warning that calls Christians to take care not to naively rely upon all medical advice that offers hope for a cure.” — Anthony Van Grouw Jr., MD, long-time board member and chairman of the Christian Health Care Center, Wyckoff, N.J.
