Bioethics: A Primer for Christians

Synopsis

In the face of continuing advances in medical research and treatment, bioethics remains a serious ongoing social concern. For nearly two decades Gilbert Meilaender's Bioethics has offered discerning Christian guidance on a wide range of pressing issues in medical ethics.

Now in its third edition, Meilaender's Bioethics covers abortion, assisted reproduction, genetic research, suicide and euthanasia, human experimentation -- and much more -- in language that is theologically informed, straightforward, and clear. This new edition includes updated information throughout and an added discussion of the need to protect Christian conscience in the practice of medicine.

Excerpt

I am pleased that Eerdmans has seen fit to publish a third edition of this little book and that it continues to find readers. Without making major changes or adding any entirely new chapters, I have updated and refined the text at any number of places. I have also added in chapter eight a brief discussion of the need to protect Christian conscience in the practice of medicine, an issue of increasing concern in our society. It remains true, as I said in the Preface to the Second Edition, that this is a book written by a Christian chiefly for other Christians, but that all are welcome and invited to “listen in.”
