Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

A dozen Christian theologians tackle the question of human cloning and offer diverse views of whether cloning is "playing God" and whether it is something to be welcomed as a scientific advance or feared as a manipulation of creation. While all 12 agree this question needs to be discussed before human cloning becomes a reality, they offer a wide range of views. The contributors represent various Christian denominations. Most are present or former seminary professors; two are directors of church "think-tanks" (representing the Church of Scotland and Roman Catholicism). Two of the 12 are women: one says no to cloning; one sees it as a way to undercut male hegemony and solve the problem of same-sex couples who want a child who possesses the genes of at least one of them. Overall, the collection offers provocative views of an emerging moral issue. Highly recommended.?Augustine J. Curley, Newark Abbey, N.J.

From the Back Cover

As cloning begins to loom ahead of us as a possibility for our future, Christians have begun to ask themselves if human cloning equals playing God. Is the technology - despite being scientifically exciting - a moral option in our world? Should we clone a human just because we can? In this volume, Cole-Turner gathers twelve highly readable and nontechnical essays debating what could become the defining controversy of the late twentieth century.
