Synopsis

“We hope this book will be helpful to the Christian community and the larger society in
helping to find ways to practise science with a conscience.”

Bishop Dr Robert M Solomon
Chairman, Life Sciences Study Group
National Council of Churches of Singapore (NCCS)
In his Foreword

The Church supports life. For years Christians have been involved in the advancement of science, medicine and health care. However, recent progress in the life sciences raises issues about our definitions of life and about being human beings, this albeit its promises of delivering possible cures for genetic diseases.

Standing between the two worlds of the modern scientific enterprise and the tradition of the Church, how then should Christians respond? A Christian Response to the Life Sciences presents to readers the complex field of the life sciences and the Christian ethics. It is based on the findings of the Life Sciences Study Group, convened by NCCS and made up of leading theologians, medical professors and scientists. It is aimed primarily at pastors, church leaders and interested Christians and covers:

  • The life sciences: a Christian perspective
  • Introduction to the life sciences
  • Human genome project: theological and ethical issues
  • A Christian view of genetically modified food
  • Human cloning & embryonic stem cell research: a Christian approach
