Item description for The Morality Of Adoption: Social-Psychological, Theological, and Legal Perspectives (Religion, Marriage, and Family) by Timothy P. Jackson...
The increasing number and legitimacy of various kinds of adoption are revolutionizing how families are formed. Is there any way to determine what kinds of adoption public morality and the law should allow?
In this uniquely interdisciplinary book, Jewish, Catholic, and Protestant contributors wrestle with such concrete issues as the psychology of family ties, the advisability of cross-cultural adoption, the morality of single-parent adoption, and the new concept of embryo adoptions. Their conclusions pave the way for better-informed reflection and action by scholars and those considering adoption.
Adding a literary touch are letters from ethicist Gilbert Meilaender to his adopted son, Derek.
