In writing it, I am grateful for the opportunity to share what I believe God is calling us to be and to do at this unprecedented, kairotic moment in human history. The New Testament term `kairos', according to Robert McAfee Brown, refers to a `time of opportunity demanding a response: God offers us a new set of possibilities and we have to accept or decline'." -- Intro., p. xiii.

Includes bibliographical references and index.
This book "is not a defence of church teachings; rather, it is a description and constructively critical evaluation of the strategies with which Christians denominations are trying to influence public policies dealing with bioethical issues. After analysing how Christian churches and their theologians have formulated recommendations for public policy on bioethical issues, Williams assesses the strategies used to get their recommendations accepted. Based on this sober -- and sobering -- analysis, Williams offers a number of compelling suggestions for future action". -- back cover.
