Amid continuing advances in medical research and treatment, Gilbert Meilaenders Bioethics has long provided thoughtful guidance on many of societys most difficult moral problemsincluding abortion, assisted reproduction, genetic experimentation, euthanasia, and much more. In this fourth edition, Meilaender updates much of the data referenced in the book and responds directly to recent developments, such as the CRISPR/Cas9 method of gene editing. Christians seeking discernment in this new decade will appreciate Meilaenders circumspect writing and his ability to address the nuances of each issue while maintaining strong and clearly stated moral convictions.
"The Christian who simply wants to get a reliable handle on bioethics will find nothing better than this splendid little book. . . . It is seldom, and therefore all the more welcome, that one who is a master of his field takes the time to walk the nonspecialist through it. Meilaender does that without a hint of condescension, and with an easy style that will engage those who might otherwise be intimidated by his expertise. Highly recommended."
"A thoughtful introduction to the ethical questions surrounding medical issues at the nexus of life and death."
"Meilaender gives his reasoning, carefully worked out from Christian writings, for each of his major conclusions. . . . Concise and definite, his primer does its duty well."
Journal of Christian Nursing
"This pithy little book offers a vision and wisdom rarely found in volumes many times its size."
