            This new book by Dr Ian Guthridge, historian and former Jesuit priest, presents a fresh, frank and no-holds-barred debate about Religion. Is it Faith, or Fact, or Fantasy? Indeed, do we need Religion any more - or is it simply past its use-by date, and something we would be well ...rid of. Timely and relevant, these questions often underpin headlines in the Media. For example, increasing revelations of child abuse by clerics, with Church authorities sweeping these under the carpet; controversies over Gay Maniage, the ordination of women priests, and the use of taxpayer money to fund religious schools; conflicts between Religion and Science over Creation and Evolution; the rival claims of Jews and Muslims to the Holy Land and, here at home, growing concerns about increasing numbers of Muslim migrants from countries hostile to the West; questions about whether Islam is an essentially peaceful religion or a peaceful religion hi-jacked by extremists ; and the challenge presented by Richard Dawkins and the late Christopher Hitchens that God is a Delusion and Religion has been a source of endless divisions and conflicts, and should therefore be got rid of altogether; so has Religion really passed its use-by date - or are we in danger of throwing out the baby with the bath-water? In this book, Guthridge approaches Religion from an unusually wide perspective. For having been a believer throughout the first half of his life - with a Doctorate in Theology from the Gregorian University in Rome - he knows what Religion looks like and feels like from the inside; but, having abandoned Established Christianity throughout the second half of his life, he knows what Religion looks like and feels like from the outside. And, given this double perspective from both sides of the equation, the book launches a strong and uninhibited presentation of both the Case for the Prosecution of Religion, and the Case for its Defence - examining each of these on the basis of evidence, rather than on wil

            Exposing Vulnerable People to Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide

            In court cases, policy studies and media stories, euthanasia advocates claim that Belgium's euthanasia records are complete and transparent. The official euthanasia story from Belgium has been accepted at face value by the authors of these influential reports and court decision...s; the Royal Society of Canada End-of-Life Decision Making report; the Quebec Select Committee on Dying with Dignity report; the Commission on Assisted Dying report - UK : the BC Supreme Court Justice Lynn Smith: Carter decision. This book examines the record of euthanasia in Belgium, and exposes what these reports have overlooked. "...Alex Schadenberg brings together both information and data that should cause euthanasia/ physician-assisted suicide advocates not just to pause, but step back from their positions. I do hope that this book receives wide readership in the general community." - Hon Greg Donnelly MLC, New South Wales. "Alex Schadenberg's informative publications and speeches have encouraged many Members of Parliament and Government to consider these issues more closely, and with a balanced and educated view." - Leesa Vlahos MP, South Australia.& #xD; "The insights given in this publication explaining how legalised euthanasia plays out in practice will help persuade legislators to defeat such bills and better understand why they ought never sanction the killing of the very citizens they represent." - Hon Nicolas (Nick) Pierre Goiran MLC, Western Australia.
