Living in an era of highly technical medicine is comforting but confusing at times. How should Christians make life and death decisions? How do we move from the ancient Bible text to twenty-first century questions about organ transplantation, stem cell research, and human cloning? What kind of care do we owe one another at the end of life? Is euthanasia a Christian option?

In Christian Bioethics, an ethicist and physician discuss how to think about such thorny ethical issues. Combining their backgrounds in medicine and theology, C. Ben Mitchell and D. Joy Riley address real-life moral questions in a way that is accessible for both the layperson and the clinician, allowing readers eavesdrop on their conversation about the training of doctors, the interpretation of the Bible, and controversial issues like abortion, assisted suicide, genetic engineering, and in vitro fertilization.

Examining these topics under three general headings -- the taking of life, the making of life, and the faking of life -- Christian Bioethics is a worthy guidebook for anyone facing difficult decisions about health care.
