This new book from the Center for Bioethics and Human Dignity provides a faith-based evaluation of recent technologies and trends in bioethics -- including the current debate surrounding stem cell research.Fifteen noted scholars and medical practitioners discuss some of today's new and controversial work in biomedicine -- xenotransplantation, artificial intelligence, cybernetics, and more -- and evaluate from a Christian perspective both the science and the ethical questions it raises. Designed to orient general readers to the current state of biomedical research, Cutting-Edge Bioethics is must reading for anyone wishing to confront and wrestle with the challenging moral issues posed by this ever-advancing field.
