Notes
"[E]dited by Viggo Mortensen".
"Drawing on discussions among pastors, theologians and ethicists and researchers, medical doctors and scientists from the Nordic Lutheran churches, this book begins by introducing the issues of reproductive technology, prenatal diagnosis, genetic screening and euthanasia. It then outlines an ethical approach highlighting insights from the Lutheran tradition on creation and fall, justification, love for the neighbour, the Christian in the world, culture and the limits of ethics" -- back cover.
