The complex and constantly evolving world of bioethics poses important questions for today's Christians. Since issues such as assisted dying and stem-cell research continue to hit headlines, it is important for Christians to be able to apply their values to the moral dilemmas emerging from modern science. Yet it can be difficult for Christians to know where they stand, as there are no easy answers. New Challenges for Christians will help readers to keep abreast of recent developments in medical and scientific research, and challenge them to think about and develop their own views. Part of the material was originally written for the Church Times, and this book has been fully updated. It will equip readers to navigate highly disputed territory and form opinions responsibly and with clarity and conviction.
