Synopsis

Last Rights examines end-of-life decisions in the context of the Roman Catholic tradition, a heritage rich in its teaching about the human person, the value of life, and the moral rights and responsibilities inherent to every human being. Written for Catholics seeking a better understanding of their own tradition, ministers who deal with Catholic patients, those who wish to learn more about the Catholic perspective, and ordinary decision-makers who must face these complex issues, Last Rights includes cross-references, a glossary, and an appendix and bibliography that provide resources for further study and helpful tools for end-of-life decision-making.
