The Good Death: Dying in America

‘The Good Death,’ hard to find, and religion’s role may be to blame: So writes Ann Neumann in The Good Death: An Exploration of Dying in America (Beacon Press, 2016). “The Good Death” is a call for people to examine their own wishes around end-of-life issues and decide what role religion — either theirs or that of their caregivers — will play.  About hope: “Hope can be sustaining. It can get us out of bed. But it can also result in the very painful treatment of patients and lead to denial.”
