DESCRIPTION

Fueled by rapid advances in the availability of genetic information and the capability to intervene in response to it, a genetic revolution is now underway that has profound implications for all spheres of life. But the ethical issues raised - and sometimes overlooked-by this revolution are glaring. This timely volume, written by scholars and practitioners at the forefront of genetic research - including Francis Collins, Elizabeth Thomson, C. Christopher Hook, Arthur Dyck, Allen Verhey, V. Elving Anderson, Marsha Fowler, and Charles Colson - will help readers assess from a Christian perspective the challenging ethical questions and difficult personal and social decision-making situations raised by today's genetic advancements.
