Summary

More and more people who are terminally ill are choosing assisted suicide. When Is It Right to Die? offers a different path with alternatives of hope, compassion, and death with real dignity.

Joni Eareckson Tada knows what it means to wrestle with this issue and to wish for a painless solution. For the last 50 years she has been confined to a wheelchair and struggled against her own paralysis. And she sat by the bedside of her dying father, thinking, "So much suffering, why not end it all quickly, painlessly?"

The terminally ill, the elderly, the disabled, the depressed and suicidal, can all be swept up into this movement of self-deliverance. Skip the suffering. Put a quick end to merciless pain and mental anguish. These are tempting enticements to the hurting. Joni doesn't give pat answers. Instead, she gives warm comfort from God and practical help to meet the realities for those facing death.

When Is It Right to Die? tells the stories of families who have wrestled with end-of-life questions and found that death with dignity does not necessarily mean three grams of Phenobarbital in the veins. Behind every right-to-die situation is a family. A family like yours. In her warm, personal way, Joni takes the listener into the lives of families and lets them speak about assisted suicide. What they say is surprising.

Whether you have a dying family member, facing moral and medical choices, or struggling with a chronic condition that feels overwhelming, this book will help you find practical encouragement and biblical advice to help you make difficult decisions.

This book is revised and updated to examine the current events, trending issues, and the rising acceptance of assisted suicide in this country.

Great, approachable content defending life

I read Joni’s autobiography years ago and it’s always great to hear or read what she has to say. My dad had Alzheimer’s and I work in a nursing home memory care unit. I want to know how to answer these tough questions and be equipped to protect the lives of our vulnerable elderly. Joni offered that and helped me to think differently about my own struggles. Joni has a beautiful voice and I really enjoyed listening to what she had to say. Highly recommended!

The best peaceful and Godly response concerning end of life

Joni is my hero. I have wept and been angered over the choices surrounding this difficult subject which we all must face-death. Her tender consideration of life and the death process put me at peace. Her perspective of suffering both personally and corporately in those she ministers to is exemplified honestly in this book-I am confident in the accuracy of this handbook and will refer to it when needed. What a true blessing to have a woman like JET on earth to give hope and purpose to the disabled and bodily challenged. Spirit lifting-you must read!
