This book presents five controversial issues that stir conflicts about moral decisions in our time. John Chirban draws upon resources of specific faith traditions. He provides case discussion and considers numerous interdisciplinary perspectives, arguing an interdependent approach for addressing these current ethical issues.

Industry Reviews

A strength of the volume lies in the way that several authors seek self-consciously to address the longing on the part of many persons for a world of meaning in which a good death, as well as a good life, is at least a conceptual possibility.--Religious Studies Review
