Death, Sin and the Moral Life: Contemporary Cultural Interpretations of Death

Miller-McLemore, Bonnie J.

Description

Modern psychologies of death make religious and ethical, as well as scientific, judgments that inform our attitudes toward death and illness. Bonnie Miller-McLemore uncovers and critiques the assumptions, moral and otherwise, behind the contemporary "death and dying movement." She retrieves the contributions of Augustine, Calvin, Schleiermacher, Niebuhr, Tillich, and Ramsey in formulating a theologically more adequate understanding of death and illness.
