Reviews - What do customers think about Pastoral Genetics: Theology and Care at the Beginning of Life?
Pastoral Genetics Apr 26, 2000
Pastoral Genetics deals with the reality of making choices about prenatal testing and its ramifications in a Christian context. While the book is aimed mostly at clergy it is easily followed by the lay person. The book does a good job in presenting all sides of the issues without blatantly offering the author's opinion. Some of the theological arguments are somewhat vauge or confusing, but tolerable reading if you are interested in the subject.
