Book Description

24 Feb 2011
Bioethical issues are rarely out of view in Western societies. New developments in areas such as human embryology continually raise new ethical questions, while more familiar issues frequently reappear in public debate. These are issues of central concern for Christians and for a wider public, because they raise questions about the value of life, the meaning of suffering and death and humanity's place in the natural world. Neil Messer is Reader in Theology and Head of Theology and Religious Studies at the University of Winchester. He has a research background in molecular biology, and is a minister of the United Reformed Church.

Product Description

Review

'Unlike most books published in the field of bioethics, Neil Messer's book is written from a theological perspective ... His approach is refreshing ... constitut[ing] an important contribution to the current bioethics debate ... Giving us a good example of how to partake in the bioethics debate in a manner that reflects the gospel, Messer has produced an inspiring example of how to do bioethics as a theologian ... I warmly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in listening to a theological voice in the current bioethics debate.' -- Agneta Sutton Book Reviews 201204
