About "Playing God"
In the 21st Century, we are constantly forced to make decisions based on pastoral and ethical considerations. In addition, our considerations are informed by our ever-expanding understanding of bioethics. Andrew Dutney believes that bioethics has been left too long to experts - complex decisions about bioethics really belong to those who have been wrestling personally with the moral decision making all along* the sick and thsoe who care for them.;In this book, the author argues that as we attempt to make decisions in light of our own faith and life, we are engaged in bioethics in the most personal of ways. The complexity of this decision making is particulary evident in the key areas of bioethics* abortion, euthanasia and fertility. Life and death issues are being faced on a daily basis by people through out the world. Playing God is an exploration of this relationship - women and men of faith playing God on a daily basis.
