Item Description...
Overview
Sondra Wheeler has written an extordinary introducation to bioethics. She defines with clarity the central bioethical principles of autonomy, non maleficence, beneficence and justie, while at the same time maintaining intergrity with the christian story. The book includes difficult clinical cases, drawn from real life, which give it depth; it portrays bioethical problems in technicolor. This book is recommended for pastors, hosptials and chaplains.

Publishers Description
In Stewards of Life, Sondra Ely Wheeler presents a compact, basic introduction to the language and principles of contemporary bioethics. Perhaps more importantly, by providing a theological explanation and critique of the language and principles of bioethics as applied in medical contexts, she positions bioethical issues firmly within the context of the biblical narrative that forms the church and shapes Christian understanding of human life. Wheeler uses sample cases to illustrate the ways in which bioethical principles, appropriately understood, inform Christian moral reflection. She further gives specific attention to pastors and chaplains roles in helping patients and their families confront medical crises as members of the community of faith."

Conclusion: "Awaiting the Redemption of Our Bodies": The Limits of Medicine and Bioethics

 
Practical insight for Christians w/ medical issues/decisions  Apr 1, 1999
This book's contribution is to illuminate (carefully, clearly, concisely, in simple yet stirring terms) the difference which being a Christian makes for those who are faced with biomedical issues and/or decisions, whether as ethicists, pastors, chaplains, patients or family of patients. It's a book you can use 'on the firing line', in the immediate area suggested by its title, but one which also stimulates thinking at a more general level (what difference does being a Christian make in the context of _business_ decisionmaking? of family?) and which, through analogy at least, points out a useful approach in these broader contexts.
