  • When Is It Right To Die Updated Edition (Unabridged)


    More and more people who are terminally ill are choosing assisted suicide. When is it Right to Die? offers a different path with alternatives of hope, compassion, and death with real dignity. Joni Eareckson Tada knows what it means to wrestle with this issue and to wish for a painless solution. For the last 50 years she has been confined to a wheelchair and struggled against her own paralysis. And she sat by the bedside of her dying father, thinking, So much suffering, why not end it all quickly, painlessly?

    The terminally ill, the elderly, the disabled, the depressed and suicidal, can all be swept up into this movement of self-deliverance. Skip the suffering. Put a quick end to merciless pain and mental anguish. These are tempting enticements to the hurting. Joni doesn’t give pat answers. Instead, she gives warm comfort from God and practical help to meet the realities for those facing death.

    When Is It Right to Die tells the stories of families who have wrestled with end-of-life questions and found that death with dignity does not necessarily mean three grams of Phenobarbital in the veins. Behind every right-to-die situation is a family. A family like yours. In her warm, personal way, Joni takes the reader into the lives of families and lets them speak about assisted suicide. What they say is surprising.

    Whether you have a dying family member, facing moral and medical choices, or struggling with a chronic condition that feels overwhelming, this book will help you find practical encouragement and biblical advice to help you make difficult decisions.

    This book is revised and updated to examine the current events, trending issues, and the rising acceptance of assisted suicide in this country.

  • And The Angels Were Silent (Unabridged)


    You can tell a lot about a person by the way he dies. In the last week of his life, Jesus deliberately sets his face toward Jerusalem – and certain death. This is no ordinary week. Even the angels are silent as they ponder the final days of Jesus Christ. This is no ordinary walk. Jesus doesn’t chatter. He doesn’t pause. He is on his final journey. He walks determinedly to the holy city, angrily into the temple, wearily into Gethsemane, painfully up the Via Dolorosa. And powerfully out of the vacated tomb. Master storyteller and bestselling author Max Lucado invites you: Let’s follow Jesus on his final journey. For by observing his, we may learn how to make ours. And discover what matters to God.

  • Adam : Gods Beloved

    Henri Nouwen found a remarkable guide in a severely disabled young man named Adam.

    Excerpts from Adam: God’s Beloved
    In our society plagued by fear, anxiety, loneliness, depression, and a sense of being lost, we keep looking for guides. We so much hope that someone-a guru, spiritual director, or soul friend-can help us make sense out of our confusion and can show us a way to inner wholeness, freedom, and peace.
    I recognized that Adam’s way, the way of radical vulnerability, was also the way of Jesus.
    Adam clearly challenged us [the L’Arche Daybreak community] to trust that compassion, not competition, is the way to fulfill our human vocation. This challenge forced us to reexamine all the basic assumptions of our individual and action-oriented lives.
    I am a witness to Adam’s truth. I know that I couldn’t have told Adam’s story if I hadn’t first known Jesus’ story. Jesus’ story gave me eyes to see and ears to hear the story of Adam’s life and death.

  • Our Greatest Gift


    2 Hours On 3 CDs

    Additional Info
    The Franciscan priest, professor, and scholar spent his last 10 years as pastor of a community for mentally handicapped people. Reflecting on deaths there and elsewhere, his 1994 book explores two ideas–that death can be a welcome return to our spiritual source and that impending death offers us opportunities for intense and heartfelt love. Death leads to new life, he says, because it gives us a chance to express gentleness and kindness toward others. Narrated respectfully but unremarkably, the down-to-earth writing will mobilize our love for the least among us and help listeners embrace the realities of death in a humble and spiritual way.
