"In the face of rapid advances in medical research and treatment, bioethics has become a serious social concern. Originally published in 1996 and later chosen by World magazine as one of the top 100 books of the twentieth century, Gilbert Meilaender's Bioethics covers a wide range of pressing bioethical issues and offers discerning guidance on how Christians ought to think about them."--BOOK JACKET.
