On Moral Medicine: Theological Perspectives in Medical Ethics
Stephen E. Lammers, Allen Verhey
William B. Eerdmans Pub., 1998 - Medical - 1004 pages
Selected as a Choice "Outstanding Academic Book" when it was first published, On Moral Medicine remains the most comprehensive anthology on medical ethics written from a theological point of view. Collecting a wide range of contemporary and classical theological essays dealing with medical ethics, this volume is the finest resource available for engaging the pressing problems posed by medical advances.
Written by leaders in the fields of theology, ethics, and medicine, these readings move from general issues (such as the relation of religion and medicine) through analysis of concepts important to both religion and medicine (such as life and its sanctity, nature and its mastery, and respect for persons and their agency) to concrete moral issues in medical care (such as abortion, genetic control, euthanasia, and the allocation of resources).
This second edition updates and expands the original volume to reflect today's new frontiers in medicine and their corresponding ethical debates. Among the 67 new selections are discussions of new developments in health care, the importance of nurses to health care, and the care of patients with AIDS.
