In the face of continuing advances in medical research and treatment, bioethics remains a serious ongoing social concern. For nearly two decades Gilbert MeilaendersBioethics has offered discerning Christian guidance on a wide range of pressing issues in medical ethics.

Now in its third edition, Meilaenders Bioethics covers abortion, assisted reproduction, genetic research, suicide and euthanasia, human experimentation — and much more — in language that is theologically informed, straightforward, and clear. This new edition includes updated information throughout and an added discussion of the need to protect Christian conscience in the practice of medicine.
