Christian Bioethics A Guide for the Perplexed

by Agneta Sutton

Part of the Guides for the Perplexed Series

Christian Bioethics A Guide for the Perplexed Synopsis

This is a new Guide for the Perplexed title providing an examination of bioethics that will couple Christian and philosophical perspectives.In this Guide for the Perplexed , Agneta Sutton understands Bioethics in a wide sense which includes issues in medical ethics and questions concerning our relationship with animals, plants and, indeed, the whole planet Earth. The key question is that of the value of life. This, then, yields the questions of what respect we owe to human and other forms of life and of how we should care for the world in general.These questions are approached from a Christian perspective and also from more strictly philosophical perspectives. Thus, arguments from a Christian perspective regarding our relationships with fellow humans, other creatures and the planet, are coupled with discussions of different kinds of argument and counter-argument.Continuum's Guides for the Perplexed are clear, concise and accessible introductions to thinkers, writers and subjects that students and readers can find especially challenging - or indeed downright bewildering. Concentrating specifically on what it is that makes the subject difficult to grasp, these books explain and explore key themes and ideas, guiding the reader towards a thorough understanding of demanding material.

Christian Bioethics A Guide for the Perplexed Press Reviews

This book is a useful introduction for nurses and others who are interested in bioethics with an emphasis on the Christian perspective. Reviewed by Vince Mitchell, Book Reviews Editor, c/o of International Centre for Nursing Ethics, University of Surrey, Guildford, UK. Reviewed by Adam Ford in Church Times, 3 October 2008 The book is well referenced and draws widely on a variety of predominantly Catholic texts to support and explain her argument...This book sits alongside others that seek to make bioethics more accessible to a wider Christian readership. triple helix, December 2009 if you read this book, be aware that for the most part it presents a very selective account of Christian attitudes to bioethical issues. You will need to read it with your mind open, and ask wheter you are being told what to think or enabled to think for yourself November 2008--Sanford Lakoff Third Way
