In this collaborative effort, Fr John and Lyn Breck provide practical, theological, and pastoral thinking on complex matters: the use of embryonic stem cells, gene therapy, new definitions of sexuality and marriage, treatment of addictive behavior and substance abuse, and end-of-life care. Taking us through the stages on life's way, the authors show us how the ancient, vital wisdom of the Orthodox Church inspires and informs contemporary life.
"Students and scholars alike, especially those interested in gaining an Orthodox perspective on a range of some of the most important contemporary ethical topics, should read this insightful book. I highly recommend this text."
-Gayle E.Woloschak, Department of Radiology, Northwestern University
"Once again, the Brecks give us a thoughtful, well-researched, theologically informed book on bioethics that will set the stage for study and discussion for a long time to come."
-Very Rev. Stanley Harakas, Archbishop Iakovos Professor of Orthodox Theology Emeritus, Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Seminary
