'The book covers an impressive amount of ground, including some topics that have received little attention from Christian ethicists. ...Genetics and Christian Ethics is undoubtedly a valuable resource for anyone seriously interested in the issues with which it engages.' Theology
In the immediate future we are likely to witness significant developments in human genetic science. It is therefore of critical importance that Christian ethics engages with the genetics debate, since it affects not just the way we perceive ourselves, but also has wider implications for our society. Celia Deane-Drummond considers the ethical issues arising out of specific practices in human genetics, including genetic screening, gene therapy and genetic counselling alongside a feminist critique, and argues for a virtue ethics approach to such issues that emphasises wisdom, prudence and justice.
