Christian Bioethics: A Guide for Pastors, Health Care Professionals, and Families, by C. Ben Mitchell and D. Joy Riley, MD, is a thought-provoking book, allowing readers to reflect on the ethics of different medical situations, ranging from fertility issues to end-of-life care. This book is very relevant to the modern world we live in, and individuals who have earnestly questioned the ethics of issues in health and science will find this book to be a resourceful guide.
The book taught me a more about things such as organ transplantation and in vitro fertilization. Readers see some of the sadness that sometimes occurs after making crucial medical decisions, such as a man’s death that occurred after he donated part of an organ to his ailing brother. The authors have included handy discussion questions relating to various sections, which could easily turn this book into a book club study guide.
Christian Bioethics also discusses issues involving human clones. Lovers of science fiction may find the book intriguing, since it explores the ethics of ever-changing science. I like how the authors related different Bible verses to various sections of the book. The book is a great tool for pastors, since many people in Christian congregations may be struggling with bioethical issues, and these topics can be incorporated into sermons or classes.
I received this book from Cross Focused Reviews in exchange for an honest review. You can buy the book here on Amazon.
