Considering Religious Traditions in Bioethics: Christian and Jewish Voices
Mary Jo Iozzio
University of Scranton Press, 2001 - Business & Economics - 143 pages
This book represents a collaborative effort among the Christians and Jewish religious thinkers. They all focus on a bioethical moment at the beginning or the end of life. As members of a distinct tradition that has addressed the subject in a formal way, each one attempts an explanation of that tradition's position on the subject and suggests further developments. Healthcare issues are complex to begin with and these analyses and discussions make it a bit more likely they will be dealt with on sound moral grounds.
