We live in a world where incredible medical technologies are doable---but does 'can do' mean 'should do'? This book helps readers recognize and constructively engage bioethical issues with the resources of Christian understanding and ministry. Three case studies illustrate the stages of development: taking life, making life, and re-making life. Within these stages fall the bioethical issues of abortion, euthanasia, forgoing treatment, reproductive technologies, genetic technologies, drug or cybernetic enhancements, nanotechnologies, and more. By engaging the incredible medical technologies available today from a biblical and theological perspective, this book equips students, church and lay leaders, and health care professionals to help foster a world in which medical expertise informs our bioethical decisions and human beings are shown respect as people created in the image of God.
