Reviews - What do our customers think?
Dust to dust  Jun 3, 2004
Yes, this is a good compendium which does just what the title suggests: ethical perspectives on today's medical issues. It's not easy reading.

For me, it was like stuffing unwanted food down the throat. I had to take it real slowly, a few pages at a time.

Nelson et al. do a good job of martialing the legal cases related to abortion, death and dying, transplanted organs, artificial inseminations, and such.

The "Christian" perspective seems to stand out most in the final chapter, when the authors discuss how medical treatment and care has become absorbed into the "free market," and why it possibly should be taken out of that sphere and rendered as a "right" for all citizens. This sounded pretty good to an individual lacking medical insurance. But the authors also delineate precisely how such efforts have failed in the past and are unlikely to soon overcome the inertia built into the profit-system of medical care.

Too bad for those of us on the receiving end. Anyone want to try a curandero instead? Or how about Christian Science, what Harold Bloom called America's "self-help" application to religion. It would be a lot cheaper. Diximus.

Well Done Compendium of Medical Ethics/Mod. Christian View  Apr 6, 2002
Coming from a moderate-to-liberal Protestant Christian position (both authors are from Union Theological Seminary of Twin Cities), this book presents an intro to the field of medical ethics.

This was included in required reading list of grad. course on bioethics, and thus provides adequate overview of the subject matter.

Although more conservative Christians will not agree with many of the ethical statements, this certainly provides a view for where many are coming from in this growing field of importance. The views on abortion are slanted towards pro-choice, however most of the time seeks to present a balanced opinion.

One of my areas of interest is an example of such balance, the area of informed consent,e.g. "We distort the larger issues of human research when we absolutize either side of the question-means or ends, present or future, individual or society. There is undeniable truth on both sides. We are on better ground if we pose the question in terms of responsibility. The researcher is responsible to the welfare of the subjects of the experiment. Their free humanity cannot be violated without impunity. The researcher is also responsible for the welfare of the larger society. There is potential harm in not doing research as well as risks of doing it. Beyond these affirmations, we who attempt to perceive the world through Christian lenses affirm our responsibility to God."
