Genetic Engineering. Cloning. Medicare. Assisted Suicide. At some point in our lives, most of us will have to face increasingly difficult moral decisions that will arise due to advances in the world of science and technology. Many of us will feel inadequate when faced with the complexity of making decisions, which seem better suited to doctors and scientists. Resolving these problems in ways faithful to Christ-centered values and virtues require a special commitment from us. We must become informed enough to make biblically based choices. Whether you are a health-care professional, a layperson, or in ministry, God in the Laboratory gives much-needed information and vital biblical perspectives on the complex issues of bioethics. Once informed, believers can make firm moral decisions and face the questions surrounding life science developments with a special peace. Living and choosing faithfully will witness that Christ is the Lord of life. Paper.
Wouldn't it be great to have answers to all of life's perplexities? However, today's technological advances brought on at a dizzying speed leave us with complex questions that the Bible does not specifically address. Where do we start in dealing with the right to die, euthanasia, genetic manipulation, fertilization in the laboratory, surrogate motherhood...? Truesdale tackles these topics head-on. His careful analysis of the arguments surrounding such controversial issues will provide believers with vital information to form sensitive, well-informed opinions in these morally obscure areas.
Truesdale is a professor of Christian ethics and philosophy of religion at the Nazarene Theological Seminary.
