In the face of continuing advances in medical research and treatment, bioethical questions remain at the heart of many of our society's difficult moral problems. Since its original publication in 1996, Gilbert Meilaender's Bioethics has proven itself an effective introduction into this arena, providing thoughtful guidance on today's most relevant issues, including abortion, assisted reproduction, genetic research, euthanasia, human experimentation, and much more.
In this fourth edition, Meilaender updates much of the data referenced in the book and responds directly to recent developments, such as the CRISPR/Cas9 method of gene editing. Christians seeking discernment in this new decade will appreciate Meilaender's circumspect writing and his ability to address the nuances of each issue while maintaining strong and clearly stated moral convictions.
Gilbert Meilaender (Ph.D., Princeton University), a bioethicist and Lutheran theologian, is Duesenberg Professor of Christian Ethics at Valparaiso University in Valparaiso, Indiana. He is associate editor of Journal of Religious Ethics and is acclaimed for his other books, which include Body, Soul, and Bioethics and Bioethics: A Primer for Christians.
