Life and Death Matters
Seeking the Truth About Capital Punishment
Dr. Robert Baldwin would be the first to tell you that he used to be an average white Southern male; a family man with conservative ideals and a growing medical practice, he was living out his life without too much introspection. In 1997, however, Baldwin was diagnosed with the auto-immune disease, myasthenia gravis. In his compelling new memoir Life and Death Matters, Baldwin discusses his health scare and his subsequent search for truth in both the Christian church and society at large. Baldwin goes on to tackle one of the most precarious moral issues of our time-the death penalty-with statistical fact and thoughtful religious sympathy. While volunteering as a prison minister, Baldwin immerses himself in this issue, proving himself to be a most thoughtful individual with an eye for social injustice and an ear for those in most need of counsel.
