Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Beginning with an unargued for and frankly Christian perspective that life is a gift from God, Wennberg argues that suicide and euthanasia are generally immoral. The author may shock nonbelievers when he claims that justified suicide is rarer than justified homicide, but Wennberg does use many secular arguments to recognize exceptions to both prohibitions. Moreover, he deals sensitively with the conceptual issues that are dear to the hearts of analytic philosophers. He contributes valuably to understanding various kinds of euthanasia. His simple and elegant prose makes this book a delight to read despite its somber themes. Worthwhile for any library.-- Sidney Gendin, Eastern Michigan Univ., Ypsilanti
