We now live in a culture of death. Much of modern medicine has gone seriously wrong. In its ethics and practices, it has departed from its historic roots and has therefore become a threat to all men, women and children. This book does not seek trite, comfortable answers. Rather, it develops a rugged bioethical framework, based on principles derived from the Bible and supported by analyses of recent trends in medicine and science. But this book is not for cosy, fireside reading. It wants you out of your chair and doing. It calls for a head-heart-hand response of ‘principled compassion' to overcome this culture of death and gain a culture of life.
