Bogosh, Christopher W.
Do you believe you have a soul? Do you believe life begins at conception? Do you believe a person with a beating heart is alive? Do you believe in a line separating life from death? In 1980, modern medicine cast a shadow of doubt on all these questions by establishing a new standard to define death, one commonly referred to as brain death, which now has legal status in the United States. Modern Medicine’s Definition of Death shows how this redefinition evolved in the West, its inherent inconsistencies, and the challenges it poses to Christians; and then it moves on to present a Christ-centered, traditional, and biblical approach to encourage Christians to bold belief and faithful practice, whether “in life or death.”
