Product Description

"From the Publisher:" IN WHOSE IMAGE? Faith, Science, and the New Genetics Recent developments in the biological sciences pose challenging questions to the church's theology and to the church's understanding of what it means to be human--that is, made in the image of God. Can Christians affirm both their own faith and the new genetics? Where does the Christian tradition contain insights that might help us assess the potential good, as well as the evil, of new developments in genetic research? These essays by pastors, scientists, and theologians establish dialogue between science and faith. Study guides accompany each chapter, making this book a uniquely helpful resource for individuals and church groups.
