Description

Euthanasia, assisted suicide, or both are now legal in the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and Switzerland, and attempts to legalise them are active in France, Germany, and the United Kingdom. These threats are potentiated by economic recession and demographic shift and will increase in Europe in the coming decade.  What are the biblical principles that should guide us on these issues?  What are the major arguments for and against euthanasia and how are they best articulated? How can evangelical Christians work most effectively with others to counter these growing threats?
