What features define human life? How do individuals and communities understand and withstand suffering and pain? What is good dying? In our time, these essential human questions are often viewed primarily as bioethics issues. In reality, these are not exclusively medical or bioethical enquiries. Rather, they are questions that all human individuals and societies ultimately wrestle with.
This coming January, Dr. Quentin Genuis will be teaching a week-long course on “Healthcare and the Christian Life.” Join us for a one-hour webinar as Quentin introduces some of these topics and previews the course. This event will be held fully online over Zoom.
