Description

Advances in medical technology bring with them a host of new and perplexing ethical issues.  More than ever before physicians, pastors, counselors, and students need wisdom to deal with the difficult question related to healthcare- questions about


  • the value of prenatal life
  • the ethics of medical research
  • how to treat the terminally ill
  • defining personhood and death
  • weighing risks versus benefits of medical procedures 
  • caring for patients incompetent to choose their own treatments
With insight and clarity, John M.Frame sheds needed biblical light on how to honor God in the midst of complex medical-ethical decisions.  An appendix dedicated to the abortion controversy offers an exceptionally compelling case in defense of the unborn.
