This book integrates the foundations of the values of the Jewish heritage with the actual experiences of patients. Through clinical guidelines and anecdotes, the reader will gain insight into complex issues involving life, death, pain, suffering, illness and health as they affect patients, health care providers and family members. The book discusses contemporary issues such as AIDS, hospice and Baby M based on the value system of the Jewish heritage. It is unique in that it combines the personal reflections of patients with expert discussions of psychological and medical aspects of these issues. Includes a contribution by the winner of the 1991 Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion.
