Both hospice and the church have important ministries to offer the dying, their families, and their friends. Now hospice and the church are finding ways to work together. In this important book, Irion draws from his long career in the pastoral psychology and his long-term contacts with the hospice movement to interpret each organization to the other.

Irion shows how the church and hospice can enhance each other's care for the dying. He also clearly states where the guiding philosophies of the two differ.

This book is the first full treatment of the relationship of hospice to Christian ministry. Throughout its pages, the focus returns steadily to the care of persons - the dying, the members of the hospice staff, the families. Dr. Irion pays special attention to the needs of the children of the dying and also discusses contemporary issues in the treatment of pain, quality of life, and the care of patients with AIDS.
