Front Cover
Pilgrim Press, 1996 - Science - 170 pages
How are clergy to respond to the profound impact of genetics and medical technology at the beginning of life? In clear, accessible language Ron Cole-Turner and Brent Waters trace recent developments in the field, then describe the religious and moral issues that confront those coping with difficult pregnancies. Theologically sensitive and enormously practical, Pastoral Genetics is a summons to clergy to engage in an increasingly necessary conversation in the life of the church.
