Product Description

How would God have us respond to the brave new world of genetic engineering? In Changing Human Nature James Peterson offers an informed Christian defense of genetic intervention.

Given that the material world and human beings are constantly changing, says Peterson, the question is not if there will be change but whether we will be conscious and conscientious about its direction. Part of our God-given calling, he maintains, is to positively shape our environment and ourselves, including our genes.

While carefully addressing important religious concerns, Peterson's theologically grounded yet jargon-free discussion puts forth clear and specific guidelines for proper genetic intervention. Distinctive for its integrated, nuanced approach, Changing Human Nature will fill the need for a thoughtful, positive Christian perspective on this timely topic

Publisher's Description

Nature around us and indeed, our own human nature are constantly changing. The question before us then is not if there will be change, but rather whether we will be conscious and conscientious about the course of that change. In Changing Human Nature, James Peterson helps us to think through what our part should be from a Christian perspective.

Editorial Reviews

“Perhaps the most important contribution of this book is Peterson’s retrieval of a strand of Christian theology that focuses on the human task to sustain, restore, and improve the conditions of our incomplete and damaged creation — including humans as part of creation — rather than to accept as God-given the state of the creation as we find it today. . . . Opens new terrain in bioethics for evangelical Christians. . . . One doesn’t have to agree with every move Peterson makes here to recognize the great significance of this book for the current debate.”
