Book Description

October 1, 2000 0664222749 978-0664222741 2

In this book, William May considers the images that shape the convictions and daily practice of the physician--images that can order experience and present the practitioner with imperatives by which to live. This updated edition will once again challenge physicians, students, and teachers of medical ethics to reach a deeper understanding of the physician's place in society.

3.0 out of 5 stars Review December 23, 2000
By A Customer
This book is a different look at the ethics of medical care and the different roles that are taken, often simultaneously, by physicians. While this book is not a good one for those just being introduced to Christian bioethics, it is a good one for those who are more conversant with the issues involved and the more prevalent viewpoints. The author provides a good evaluation of some of the competing issues involved in clinical ethics, though without getting entangled in details or scenarios. I recommend this book for Christian physicians interested in bioethics.
