Review:

"Beyond Cloning: Religion and the Remaking of Humanity pushes beyond the daily headlines to ask about the future impact of our increasing ability to control human biological process...Cole-Turner has gathered a notable group of writers who move beyond the usual cloning conversation about safety and reproductive rights to consider the larger scientific, cultural, and religoous landscape in which the discussion takes place...In a time when religious voices need to be heard in the public square, Beyond Cloning provides an invaluable resource for education about and careful reflection on a variety of often conflicting Christian views about where human biotechnology is—and ought to be—taking us."—Margaret R. McLean, for Religious Studies Review, July 2002 (Margaret R. McLean)

"This is an excellent collection. The essays are accessible, thoughtful, frequently provocative, and always interesting. Those who would think clearly and Christianly about the dawning era of biotechnology are well served by this book." (Allen Verhey, Blekkink Professor of Religion, Hope College)

"Beyond Cloning is a helpful and thoughtful review not only of the cloning agenda but of the spin-off technologies emerging from it. The essays present an interdisciplinary as well as a philosophical and theological analysis of the underlying technical, personal, and social issues. In particular many of the essays rightly focus our attention on the long term implications of the technology transfer from cloning to other technologies whose feasibility has been enhanced by the recently completed Human Genome Project."—Thomas A. Shannon, Professor of Religion and Social Ethics, Worcester Polytechnic Institute (Thomas A. Shannon)

"Beyond Cloning sews together threads of thought from some of the most insightful theological and ethical thinkers into a single analytical fabric. In this book the cloning controversy reaches maturity. Ronald Cole-Turner's editorial leadership provides an unmatched service of insight for us all."—Ted Peters, The Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences,; author of Playing God? Genetic Determinism and Human Freedom. (Ted Peters, Center for Theology & Natural Sciences)

"Cole-Turner is well known in the science and religion world for his tireless efforts to engage scientific developments from a serious theological perspective. Beyond Cloning is a ncie introduction to current thinking on a complex topic of immediate relevance."—Research News and Opportunities in Science and Technology, April 2001. (Science $ Theology News)
