SAN FRANCISCO, May 21, 2024 /Christian Newswire/ -- At some point, every Catholic must grapple with end-of-life decisions. No one is exempt, whether they are prepared or not. NOW AND AT THE HOUR OF OUR DEATH: MAKING MORAL DECISIONS AT THE END OF LIFE (Ignatius Press) takes a practical approach to these decisions in its question-and-answer format, making it easy for readers to find what they are looking for quickly and obtain answers to important moral decisions.

Written by Nikolas T. Nikas, president and general counsel of the Bioethics Defense Fund, and Bruce W. Green, a former constitutional and pro-life litigator, dean and law professor, NOW AND AT THE HOUR OF OUR DEATH acts a guidebook for Catholics on discerning the correct path laid out by the Catholic Church for making end-of-life decisions.

NOW AND AT THE HOUR OF OUR DEATH is needed at this point in history because modern medical technology, hostility to the Christian worldview and incorrect understanding of Catholic teachings has made end-of-life decisions complicated.

In NOW AND AT THE HOUR OF OUR DEATH, Catholics and their family members will get answers to questions such as: What medical procedures are morally required, and what procedures are optional? Is providing food and water to a patient an optional medical treatment, or is it basic care necessary for all human beings? What roles do conscience, quality of life, pain and financial burden play in end-of-life decision-making? With a clear, concise question-and-answer format, the book provides moral answers to these questions, and many more, in the light of Catholic teaching based on Scripture and Sacred Tradition.

"This book presents a clear, concise summary of the Catholic Church's moral tradition surrounding end-of-life decision-making," said Deacon Stephen Doran, M.D., neurosurgeon, author and bioethicist. "It also provides a well-organized, practical resource for patients and their families that can be pulled off the shelf for an immediate answer to the questions that inevitably arise during a time that can be overwhelming. It is a book that should be kept handy." For more information, to request a media review copy, or to schedule an interview with Nikolas T. Nikas or Bruce W.
