Without question, argues David Vandrunen in Bioethics and The Christian Life, Christians are facing unparalleled difficulty in facing the moral questions posed by the increasingly complex field of bio-ethics. Where do we draw lines? What is permissible? Despite the great possibility that current progress in bio-ethics will make life both better and longer, there also a looms "the eerie forebodings of a future that is less humane" that creates "a so-called 'culture of death'" (pp. 11-12). How are we to faithfully respond? Vandrunen's book is written to address this perplexing situation.Vandrunen want Christians to come to a better understanding of how to respond to the bioethical questions that confront them" by elucidating the major issues in bioethics and their implications for believers. As such, this book makes no claim to be a clarion call to social action or a social commentary, but an honest assessment of the issues and how believers can formulate a bioethic of their own from the perspective of their faith.
