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.
