Beschreibung

From a view that could be described as enlightened orthodoxy, McCoy tackles a wide range of issues, such as: Is there a Christian perspective on the war in Iraq that is not simply a human perspective? Are Christian ethics pumped up or watered down humanist ethics? What is a distinctly Christian view in modern secularized society? Do the Bible and the Natural Law really still have any relevance to the burning moral issues of the day? As scientific progress raises moral issues of dazzling complexity, do traditional attitudes to abortion, euthanasia, in vitro fertilization and human embryology still make any sense? How long should we prolong life? Should we ever assist death?
