How should living things and our own human nature be changed in the hands of those who can alter them genetically? How do we set limits, and what goals are legitimate pursuits? Neither the science of genetics nor the theory of evolution can answer these questions alone. This book's contribution to a theological understanding of science and technology helps in showing how Christian theology can provide a solid framework for considering these issues.
