What does the Christian faith have to offer? Christians believe that we are made in God’s image, and demonstrate something of our Maker’s creativity. We are also stewards of his creation. We should therefore win control of diseases, for example. We should tackle Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and injuries to the spinal cord. Used responsibly, science can serve God. But what are the guidelines? Many Christians believe that stem cell research, for example, is a step too far. In this coherent, engaging and human book Professor Gareth Jones tackles tough topics: Who designs designer babies? What is special about the human embryo? He addresses the limits of stem cell research; the world of clones and cyborgs; and the challenge of repairing and enhancing people. He observes, “The balance between being saints and sinners requires immense wisdom, discernment and understanding, all of which are enhanced by a living relationship with the God who cares for us and who experienced human existence in the person of Jesus Christ.”
