How are we to think about euthanasia, assisted suicide and other issues associated with bioethics? How are we to think as Christians?
In Bioethics: A Primer for Christians Gilbert Meilaender offers insight into a wide range of bioethical issues and explores in readily accessible language the difficulties surrounding them. Following each discussion, Meilaender offers a clear statement of how Christians ought to think about each one. Throughout his book, Meilaender stresses the importance of care for the weakest member in our community and the hope that we have, despite our inability to eliminate all suffering, because we have a God that suffers with us.
