Book Review: When is it Right to Die

With the conversation around right to life (right to die) legislation this book (update and rerelease) from Joni Eareckson Tada is an important piece to consider.

Being a person with severe disability (quadriplegic) Joni brings the reader into her world by recounting her tragic paralysis and all the emotions wrapped up in this event.  The book has been updated to help guide readers as they possibly encounter the conversation of assisted suicide or quality of life when a loved one (or self) approach death.

When is it right to die presents view points from those who have faced end of life decisions and each chapter allows the reader to invest in the conversation as questions are asked around scenarios those around us may one day face.  There are some incredible insights and directives presented including the need for believers to pray for the wisdom needed in their specific situation.

I greatly enjoyed this book and recommend it for anyone.  I mean literally anyone as this conversation is only going to get more serious as days go by.  But if you are in ministry or health care this should be considered a must read.  You are on the front lines of this discussion.

*I received this book free from Book Look Bloggers in exchange for an honest review.  These are my personal thoughts.
