Theology and Issues of Life and Death
by John Heyward Thomas, edited by Susan F. Parsons
Drawing widely on his scholarly learning, his interest in medical issues and his love of poetry, not least that of Keats and Dylan Thomas, Thomas has produced a beautifully written book reflecting deeply on Christian hope centred on the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ and the understanding of ourselves as relational beings in the Image of God. As such it is a pleasure to read. And it remains as relevant to current debates about medical ethics as to the cases and debates of the last century.
