9780664251697: Matters of Life and Death

Using a bioethical approach, John Cobb Jr. tackles some of the most controversial issues facing society and the church today--something theologians have often failed to do in the past. His four major topics are animal well-being, death with dignity, the moral status of the fetus, and sexual activity outside of marriage.

About the Author:

John B. Cobb Jr. has held many positions including Ingraham Professor of Theology at the Claremont School of Theology, Avery Professor at the Claremont Graduate School, Fullbright Professor at the University of Mainz, and Visiting Professor at Vanderbilt, Harvard, and Chicago Divinity Schools. His writings include Christ in a Pluralistic Age: God and the World; and, with coauthor Herman Daly, For the Common Good, which was cowinner of the Grawemeyer Award for Ideas Improving World Order.

From Library Journal:

This is an important and very accessible study of four controversial moral issues: animal rights, the right to die, abortion, and nonmarital sexual expression. The study is distinguished by the broad perspective in which he places each of the issues, considering not only individuals but also societies and drawing enlightening analogies between other departures from biblical injunctions and newer issues. Whether or not one agrees with Cobb's distinctions, his reasoning can lead to better understanding of many ramifications. Highly recommended.
