Item Description...
(PUBEerdmans)With the possibility of human cloning looming in the not-too-distant future and the recent completion of the genome project, which mapped the various strands of human DNA, questions of bioethics will be on the front burner in the 21st century. Listen to what 20 distinguished Christian voices have to say. 274 pages, softcover.

Publishers Description
While the Christian church has experienced extraordinary growth over the last century, Western culture has continued its seemingly inexorable drift into post-Christian forms. The contrast between our burgeoning churches and the scant impact that Christians have on public policy, the university, or the professions is distressing. And nowhere is this development more evident-and more consequential-than in the field of bioethics, where the dignity of human beings is constantly open to redefinition, and where much of our inheritance is coming under withering fire from those whose values are radically distinct from the Judeo-Christian tradition. This new volume takes seriously the Christian mandate to engage modern culture, giving specific attention to the urgent need for moral leadership as we encounter the difficult challenges posed by biotechnology. These insightful chapters by twenty leading activists, academics, and professionals discuss the contributions that a Christian perspective can and should make to the biomedical debate in today's most important forums-public policy and law, education, media, health care, and the church itself.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Responding to the new medicine  Oct 16, 2002
Bio-ethics is a new and burgeoning field, effecting all of us. Issues like human cloning, genetic engineering, assisted reproductive technologies, genetically modified foods, and embryo research are just some of the contentious areas which are making an impact on so many of us. Therefore it is important that those with religious convictions bring their concerns to bear on the new and weighty issues being debated.

Too often such debates have been left to the scientists, medical professionals, politicians and even the corporations to sort through. And often these folk bring to bear a secular utilitarian worldview on such issues. But these important matters should not be left for our politicians and scientists to decide upon. People with a religious worldview very much need to raise their voices as well.

As Nigel Cameron states in his helpful introduction:

"It is in bioethics, that point of intersection of the professions, the academy, and public policy, in which the dignity of the human being is constantly open to re-definition, and in which most of the best in our inheritance - medicine, science, the professional idea - is coming under withering fire from those whose values are radically distinct from the Judeo-Christian tradition. Our failure at the start of the new millennium to engage the culture in a degree which mirrors the size of our churches is distressing. Our failure in this realm of bioethics is particularly discouraging, since it is here that the assumptions of post-Christians are shaping their idea of what it is to be one of us. Conversely, our opportunity to make a difference at this point is immense."

That is why this volume is so important. It offers a much-needed corrective to the various dehumanising and market-driven approaches to the many debates in the life sciences. It offers a fresh restatement of the biblical position which promotes the dignity and worth of every member of the human race.

In this book a number of experts look at many different bio-ethics issues, but all from the Judeo-Christian point of view. All up, twenty medical, ethical, theological and scientific experts examine the many vexing moral issues which new developments in science and technology have produced.

These authorities deal with such topics as: fetal tissue research, in vitro fertilization, stem cell research, health care issues, abortion, euthanasia, sex education, and many other issues. The emphasis is on applying a biblical worldview to these ethical and public policy debates.

The book does not just deal with specific ethics issues. It also provides chapters on Christian leadership in public policy, developing a Christian worldview, mobilising churches to engage in the issues, and dealing with the media.

Some of the leading thinkers and writers in the field come together in this one volume: John Kilner, C. Ben Mitchell, Nigel Cameron, Francis Beckwith and Terry Schlossberg, among others. Their meaty chapters feature incisive comment on the perplexing ethical issues of our day, along with practical advice on how we all can make a contribution to the debate.

Thus this volume offers a fine collection of articles which are both timely and informative. The need has never been greater for a Biblical worldview to challenge the secularists and utilitarians who have tended to dominate these debates. This volume is a welcome corrective to that imbalance.
