From Library Journal:

The editors of this volume have undertaken an ambitious task in identifying profound theological issues and exploring their relationship to medical ethics. The subjects that are covered range from "Life and Its Sanctity" and "Nature and Its Mastery" to "Genetic Control" and "Research and Experimentation," just to name a few. For each subject, the editors provide a provocative introduction briefly summarizing the issues confronting the reader. This is followed by essays culled primarily from the writings of contemporary theologians such as Barth, Tillich, and Ramsey and reflecting a predominantly Christian outlook. Though this comprehensive anthology is intended for use in medical ethics courses, anyone interested in any aspect of medical-religious issues will find it invaluable. Carol R.
