Format: Paperback
Foreman presents a balanced and clearly-presented analysis of modern bioethical issues and their implications for Christians. The work is very approachable but not simplistic. I appreciated his ability to explain philosophical concepts in a way that makes them understandable to the uninitiated.
His even-handedness is very evident in the section entitled "Moral Arguments for and against Abortion." He is not pejorative toward particular philosophies or viewpoints but guides the reader in a reasoned approach to the topic.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is fairly well-written and does a nice job providing a bio-ethical survey of the most commonly encountered ethical dilemmas in healthcare. The book is well referenced and covers a range of topics from abortion euthanasia physician-assisted suicide in peril newborns and genetic ethics. it is lacking on addressing themes of social justice, patients with mental illness, force-feeding i.e. a healthcare provider who works in a forensic setting with obviously divided loyalties etc. The book does provide also a historical context as to how we arrived at the present position that is commonly held in secular and Christian society. the glossary is also very helpful. if you're looking for a bioethics survey text and this book is for you. It is very accessible, a fast nonfiction summer read, a good book to have on your shelf to springboard future articles. is also a good book to use in a discussion group.
