Finishing Line

Words Finishing Line, with red stick man running through a race finishing line, logo.Considering recent political developments in the UK, exploring and understanding the issue of assisted dying is more important now than ever. There are no easy answers, but the course encourages a more open understanding of the subject from a Christian perspective.

We are pleased to introduce Finishing Line - a brand new study resource addressing the issue of assisted dying, which we hope will be useful for church leaders and groups, Bible colleges and individuals in opening up conversation on this matter and exploring the key issues of assisted suicide, human dignity, medical and legal concerns, palliative care and others in a Biblical context.

Finishing Line has been developed by CARE in partnership with Keswick Ministries and is a unique study course based on John Wyatt's book Matters of Life and Death
