Product Description

In the face of continuing advances in medical research and treatment, bioethics remains a serious ongoing social concern. For nearly two decades Gilbert Meiaender's Bioethics has offered discerning Christian guidance on a wide-range of pressing issues in medical ethics.

Now in its third edition, Meilaender's Bioethics covers abortion, assisted reproduction, genetic research, suicide and euthanasia, human experimentation-and much more in language that is theologically informed, straightforward and clear. This new edition includes updated information throughout and an added discussion of the need to protect Christian conscience in the practice of medicine.

Editorial Reviews

“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.”
First Things

“A thoughtful introduction to the ethical questions surrounding medical issues at the nexus of life and death.”
Publishers Weekly

“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.”
Booklist

“This pithy little book offers a vision and wisdom rarely found in volumes many times its size.”
Journal of Christian Nursing
