Overview

The extensive attention devoted to abortion has led Christians for too long to overlook much of the exploding bioethics agenda. Moreover, to focus only on 'issues' is to fail to address the profound changes taking place in the very nature of the medical profession. This book signals the commitment of the Center for Bioethics and Human Dignity to help expand the church's bioethical vision and to foster a more substantial Christian contribution to the public debate.

Editorial Reviews

Christian Century
This informative book will inspire thoughtful reflection.
JAMA
The authors are to be commended for balancing deeply held convictions with openness. They propose a vision of who we are in a post-Christian era and its consequences for medicine.
Making the Rounds
"A lively set of essays written by persons who know their rhetorical opponents... This volume does take up important issues and does offer alternatives to the dominant paradigms.... A valuable volume."
Booknews
Three authors write for the broad audience of microbiologists involved in the study of bacterial pathogens with genetic methods--a fulminating field. The manual is based on a Cold Spring Harbor course that teaches both theory and practical approaches. Chapters on concepts, technologies, and applications are followed by 15 experiments with Salmonella and Vibrio, in which protocols and expected findings are demonstrated and strategies for similar approaches to other bacteria are discussed.
