520 |aIn the face of current arguments over issues related to human life and dignity, Christians need to be clear about how their faith speaks to such concerns and what other outlooks have to say. John Kilner, who has taught in the fields of ethics and bioethics for over forty years, brings together noted ethicists to make a Christian case for human dignity. This timely engagement with a topic of great cultural and societal importance offers a robust critique of five highly influential alternative positions, showing how a Christian view supports the crucial idea that people matter in a way that other outlooks cannot. --|cProvided by publisher.
