Matters of life and death (2nd Edition)
This volume offers biblical perspectives on humanness, infertility, the quest for the perfect child, genetics, biotechnology and stem cells, abortion and infanticide, euthanasia and assisted suicide, and concludes with a look at the future of humanity. Sensitive and gracious, it acts as a companion to those engaging with the issues in their professional and personal lives, and in public debates.
John Wyatt examines the issues surrounding the beginning and end of life against the background of current medical-ethical thought. Writing out of a deep conviction that the Bible's view of our humanness points a way forward, he suggests how Christian healthcare professionals, churches and individuals can respond to today's challenges and opportunities.
