More than ever before physicians, pastors, counselors, and students need wisdom to deal with the difficult questions related to health care -- questions about: How to treat the terminally ill. The ethics od medical research. Weighing the possible benifits of a treatment in view of known risks. Defining personhood or death. Deciding what is in the best intrest of a patient not competent to decide himself. Protecting prenatal life.
