Article excerpt

The major part of this issue of the ATR contains material from a consultation held in June on bioethics, especially the theological and ethical/moral questions which are raised by new advances in genetic technology.

Many readers will, I am sure, see the deep connections between these two papers and the questions raised in the Bioethics Consultation. And as always there are the poems and book reviews which are so valued by readers of the journal.

With both sadness and thanksgiving for their lives and work, we are also publishing memorials to two distinguished Episcopalians who died recently: Boone Porter and Shunji Nishi. Both enriched the life of the Episcopal Church in ways both pastoral and academic.

From time to time it is my duty to apologize for errors in the ATR, errors which arise because even editors can slumber. This time I must apologize to Owen Thomas and Wendel Meyer. Somehow or another in the Summer issue the title of the article by Wendel Meyer got attached to the article by Owen Thomas. …
