Review quote

Offers an array of insights from some of the world's leaders in healthcare, employment, security, and the arts [in] a beautifully written, concise treatise . . . perfect for the casual reader. * Christianity on THE ROBOT WILL SEE YOU NOW * A real treasure: encouraging, heart-warming, informative and sensible. It answers the concern of many Christian doctors that the will o' the wisp of medical imperialism has led the Christian community astray into excessive medicalisation of the process of dying, to the detriment of spiritual and family matters. This is a book for everyone, which will change souls for the better. -- Andrew Sims, Past President of the Royal College of Psychiatrists and Professor of Psychiatry Emeritus of the University of Leeds on DYING WELL (IVP, 2018) The book's brilliance lies in the effortless way John blends deep biblical insight, long experience of compassionately accompanying the old, middle-aged, young and very young through their death, world-class medical expertise, and clear-eyed cultural critique of the way over-medicalisation has worked to strip dying of its potential to nourish spiritual growth, relational healing and enriching leave-taking. Full of careful, wise practical advice for the dying, and for all those involved, what emerges is a gentle, unsentimental, moving and liberating gift to us all. -- Mark Greene is Executive Director at the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity on DYING WELL (IVP, 2018) We can ask for no wiser nor honest, practical and compassionate guide. -- Timothy Dudley-Smith on DYING WELL (IVP, 2018)
