"First Things""The Christian who simply wants to get a reliable handle on bioethics will find nothing better than this splendid little book. . . . It is seldom, and therefore all the more welcome, that one who is a master of his field takes the time to walk the nonspecialist through it. Meilaender does that without a hint of condescension, and with an easy style that will engage those who might otherwise be intimidated by his expertise. Highly recommended.""Publishers Weekly""A thoughtful introduction to the ethical questions surrounding medical issues at the nexus of life and death.""Booklist""Meilaender gives his reasoning, carefully worked out from Christian writings, for each of his major conclusions. . . .

Format: Paperback
This is the first book I ever recommend Christians to read when they want to acquaint themselves with the area of ethics and specifically bioethics. It is well written and argued and Meilaender is great at not using wordy language and explains terms he does use clearly. This book certainly is not the end of the story but from someone he reads widely on ethics this is without a doubt the best place to start to understand the big picture and where to go for further research.

So if you're interested in having an informed view on topics such as Abortion, Embryo research, Suicide, Euthanasia, Refusing treatment, Organ donation and a Christian view of sickness and health buy a copy, you won't be disappointed.

Enjoy.

Useful reading for a Christian perspective. The environment needs to be dealt with in such texts in the present time. Perhaps the next edition will reflect this expansion
