Unprecedented Choices: Religious Ethics at the Frontiers of Genetic Science

Synopsis

"With vast new scientific and technological powers, we face unprecedented choices in genetics for which traditional ethics provides little direct guidance. What role can the religious community play in addressing the ethical and theological issues that even scientists now acknowledge as urgent?" "Chapman's work forges a method for integrating ethical reasoning with scientific data. Focusing on the four issues - genetic science, cloning, patenting of life, and reinterpreting human nature - she reviews and critically assesses resources of Christian traditions and points the way toward a scientifically informed religious ethics built dialogically from concepts in both science and theology."
