From the reviews:

"This collection of essays … deals primarily with the permissibility, according to Roman Catholic teachings, of withdrawing artificial nutrition and hydration (ANH). … Although the book will certainly be most useful to those within the Catholic tradition … the book will appeal to a variety of other academics as well. … it is currently the most rigorous philosophical or theological work dedicated to the topic of withdrawal of artificial nutrition and hydration." (D. Robert MacDougall, Doody’s Review Service, October, 2008)

"Tollefsen has done a signal service to the debate by assembling a diverse, thoughtful collection of the work of philosophers and theologians in a single volume. This collection is especially valuable because the contributors represent a variety of viewpoints and theological methods. … This book is a must read for serious students of this latest debate in Catholic moral theology. … Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-level undergraduates through professionals/practitioners."

“Christopher Tollefsen has gathered a number of well-known and respected Catholic scholars to discuss a key bioethical issue: the withdrawal of artificial nutrition and hydration from patients, particularly those in a persistent vegetative state. … Tollefsen has provided an immensely useful resource both for Catholic scholars … and for those who do not understand or who honestly disagree with Catholic moral principles concerning the proper care of patients in a PVS and others who are nearing the end of life in this world.” (Jason T. Eberl, The National Catholic Bioethics Quarterly, Autumn, 2009)
