A Good Day to Die (E-book)

Product Description

“This book is the result of Dr Tang’s own experience in facing life-and death issues and in it he
explores theological, medical, ethical, moral and legal issues. He takes the reader from
historical perspectives to contemporary issues that defy black-and-white definitions. Dr Tang
addresses some very thorny issues, including euthanasia which he approaches from various
angles. He contends that being contemporary is not necessarily being right. Dr Tang’s
extensively referenced book is timely indeed, at a time of rapidly increasing knowledge and
understanding of the human body. It helps the Christian reader to make important decisions
in an informed manner; decisions surrounding sickness and death.”

“Today is a good day to die” is the rallying cry of the Klingons, a warrior race in the science fi ction worlds of Star Trek. To the Klingons, what is important is glory and honour. To die in battle is to die with full honour and much glory. Hence the embracement of death, which is in direct contrast to our culture where there is a denial of death. Even Christians have assimilated this culture, and live in fear of death though the Bible teaches that there is nothing to fear. God in His sovereignty determines the time of our birth and of our death. If He has chosen that day for us to die, then it is a good day to die. When we bring about our own death, however, the day of dying is not of God’s choosing but of ours. Do we have the right to choose when we are to die? Do we have the right to determine the way we are to die? And do we have the right to ask someone to kill us?
