This collection of essays promotes issue awareness as well as critical thinking in relation to death and dying. Across three chapters, readers will evaluate the American attitude toward death and dying, how the medical profession should treat death, and what may happen after death. It offers a wealth of information as readers compare and contrast viewpoints, which helps students grasp controversies of this complex topic. Is there a soul? Does the Bible contain reincarnation? Should doctors assist with death? Does belief in a favorable afterlife devalue life on Earth? Readers will think critically about the answers to these and more questions provided in this book.
