Are there any medical situations in which life support should be withdrawn and a patient allowed to die? In this study Christians will review various case studies on end-of-life decisions. Together they will reflect on and discuss the ethical issues involved in each case. Readers will also be challenged to articulate their own views on the issues. The study includes a Participant Handout and a Leader's Guide featuring:

  • Prayers
  • Polls
  • Writing activities
  • Teaching alternatives
  • And more!

To learn more about ethics, health care, and religion, check out book resources like Caring Well, Selections from Friedrich Schleiermacher's Christian Ethics, and Ethics Matters.

Want to continue figuring out your stance on tough ethical issues? Featured below are some suggested studies that will challenge you to consider your thoughts on various issues. If you don't have a subscription, try a Basic Study Pack: 10 Studies or Basic Study Pack: 5 Studies to save on mulitple-study purchases.
