Synopsis

From dramatic advances in medical genetics and biotechnology, controversies have emerged in the application of these techniques over the control and design of living organisms. This book brings together the seminal essays of two Catholic moral theologians in an effort to identify the key ethical and theological questions raised by the new genetic technology. Roman Catholic tradition meets modern medicine in dialogue to bring issues of faith, science, and ethical decision making into perspective.
