Overview We live in an age when scientific knowledge has provided human beings with an unprecedented ability to manipulate life and death. Changes in science and culture have fueled the controversies surrounding abortion, physician assisted suicide, genetic engineering, the patient doctor relationship, cloning and the allocation of health care resources, to name a few. The purpose of this series is to bring thoughtful and biblically informed Christian voices in bioethics into dialogue with other voices that are influential today.
Publishers Description The authors assess various secular approaches to bioethics that are particularly influential today and develop a framework for a Christian approach to assist people in addressing the many pressing issues in the field. Throughout, the authors touch on the numerous debated issues in bioethics though they are primarily concerned to give an account of the central theological notions crucial to an informed Christian perspective on bioethics.
