Book Description

1 Jun 2008
This is a new "Guide for the Perplexed" title providing an examination of bioethics that will couple Christian and philosophical perspectives.In this "Guide for the Perplexed", Agneta Sutton understands Bioethics in a wide sense which includes issues in medical ethics and questions concerning our relationship with animals, plants and, indeed, the whole planet Earth. The key question is that of the value of life. This, then, yields the questions of what respect we owe to human and other forms of life and of how we should care for the world in general.These questions are approached from a Christian perspective and also from more strictly philosophical perspectives. Thus, arguments from a Christian perspective regarding our relationships with fellow humans, other creatures and the planet, are coupled with discussions of different kinds of argument and counter-argument.Continuum's "Guides for the Perplexed" are clear, concise and accessible introductions to thinkers, writers and subjects that students and readers can find especially challenging - or indeed downright bewildering. Concentrating specifically on what it is that makes the subject difficult to grasp, these books explain and explore key themes and ideas, guiding the reader towards a thorough understanding of demanding material.

Product Description

Review

"if you read this book, be aware that for the most part it presents a very selective account of Christian attitudes to bioethical issues. You will need to read it with your mind open, and ask wheter you are being told what to think or enabled to think for yourself" November 2008--Sanford Lakoff "Third Way "

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Overview 31 Aug 2010
Format:Paperback
This book is an outstanding overview of the subject. Agneta Sutton is one of this country's leading bioethicists, and portrays the subject from a fully Christian and applied perspective, rather than from the outside.
I recommend it highly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good read 5 Nov 2008
Format:Paperback
This is a great and simple read. A very readable text which introduces the topics coherently and thoroughly, and stimulates your own further questions. Wide scope of ethical topics, yet Sutton goes into good depth to explain the arguments and difficulties well.
Highly recommended.
