Christian Faith, Health and Medical Practice

Customer Review: Christian Faith, Health And Medical Practice

Should Christians use in vitro fertilization? To what extent should our society invest in the development of expensive life-maintaining devices? When does life begin and, for that matter, what is life? In the face of recent medical-technological advances, these and many other similar questions confront today’s Christians.

Written by an interdisciplinary team of scholars under the auspices of the Calvin Center for Christian Scholarship, this book represents an attempt to “discern the shape of Christian obedience and integrity in the midst of the dilemmas and problems of medical care.” The authors offer their studied conclusions and suggestions on a number of curent [circa 1989] medical-ethical issues, including abortion, genetic control, death and dying, and AIDS.
