This collection of ten insightful essays by younger scholars in the field explores the contributions of prominent theologians to bioethics. The essays, updated and revised for this volume, first appeared between 1987 and 1992 in Second Opinion , the journal of the Park Ridge (Chicago) Center for the Study of Health, Faith, and Ethics. Each essay analyzes the contributions of a scholar (among them, Paul Ramsey, James M. Gustafson, Immanuel Jakobovits, and James F. Childres), addressing topics ranging from reproductive ethics and euthanasia to medical nutrition/hydration and organ procurement. In the last essay, Martin E. Marty reviews the previous nine. Because of the increasing complexity of issues in healthcare and in the allocation of therapeutic resources, this collection proves a valuable source of theological reflection for healthcare professionals as well as the general public. Recommended for informed lay readers and specialists. For another book on medical ethics, see the review of Lisa Belkin's First, Do No Harm on p. 154.--Ed.
