Nowhere is this more on display than in the realm of bioethics, where the most basic moral questions---human personhood, human rights versus responsibilities, the reality of moral evil, the basis of civil society---are being debated. With his timely application of natural-law thinking to the field of bioethics, Charles seeks to breathe new life back into this key debate.

Nowhere is this more on display than in the realm of bioethics, where the most basic moral questions - human personhood, human rights versus responsibilities, the reality of moral evil, the basis of civil society - are being debated. With his timely application of natural-law thinking to the field of bioethics, Charles seeks to breathe new life back into this key debate.
In Romans 12:17 Paul exhorts the church to respect what is right in the sight of all. . . . This obviously suggests that there is something that all people respect as right, whether they want to admit it or not. Basic moral perceptions, engraved on the human heart, constitute the natural law tradition, which itself enjoys the support of the biblical notions of general revelation and common grace. Daryl Charless muscular volume on the retrieval of this tradition enables men and women of faith and goodwill to obey Pauls exhortation and, simultaneously, to illuminate and season the public square, love our neighbors in word and deed, and point to the real truth of things. In light of major-league bioethical and political concerns, now is the time for the Tao, to borrow C. S. Lewiss symbol for this outlook. You wont find a clearer, keener exposition and defense for it than this book. Charles, as it were, is a contemporary son of Issachar who understands the times with a knowledge of what we should do. -David Naugle, Dallas Baptist University
