Since 1987 On Moral Medicine
has been the indispensable anthology for anyone teaching or studying bioethics. This long-awaited third edition introduces us to new and urgent topics concerning social responsibility, embodiment, and vulnerability and engages human subjects not previously considered: children, people with mental illness, the aging and elderly, and people with disabilities. . . . In short, the editors offer us a surfeit of vital and relevant insights and a worthy companion for those facing the often-confounding contemporary agenda called medical ethics.
-- James F. Keenan, S. J.
"On Moral Medicine
is quite simply the single most authoritative sourcebook on Christian medical ethics in the English language today. Not just recommended -- indispensable!"
-- David P. Gushee
"This will be the definitive teaching resource for Christian bioethics and related courses for the next decade. Lysaught and Kotva are two of the most pedagogically astute and pastorally aware scholars of their generation. They are as wise as they are smart. This volume is a gift to those of us who strive for clarity in a confounding field."
-- Amy Laura Hall
Duke Divinity School
"Freshly conceived and organized, with a mix of classic and recent contributions to the field, On Moral Medicine
will remain an invaluable resource for those who teach and study the practice of medicine as a testament to our most fundamental commitments."
-- Sondra Wheeler
