Matters of Life and Death
Human Dilemmas in the Light of the Christian Faith (2nd Edition)
Conjoined twins dilemma...
Suicide of terminally ill patient...
Designer baby transplant success...
Woman gives birth at sixty-six...
Rarely are human dilemmas out of the news. And what medical science can do and ought to do - or ought not to do - impinges on our personal lives, families and societies.
John Wyatt examines the issues surrounding the beginning and end of life against the background of current medical-ethical thought. Writing out of a deep conviction that the Bible's view of our humanness points a way forward, he suggests how Christian healthcare professionals, churches and individuals can respond to today's challenges and opportunities.
