Format: Paperback
This book provides a crucial perspective on how important covenant thinking is in the care of persons. I first read this in the early 1980's. It provided great insights into the difference between contractual reasoning and covenantal reasoning. Now, more than 30 years later, I can see how completely contractual language permeates our reasoning in medical ethics, clinical practice design and any conversations on health care reform. For this reason, I believe that this book is ever more important now. I strongly recommend this for all health professionals.

By A Customer on December 23, 2000
Format: Paperback
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.
