Summary
Discussions and debates over the medical use of stem cells and cloning have always had a religious component. But there are many different religious voices. Contributors reflect the spectrum of Christian responses, from liberal Protestant to evangelical to Roman Catholic as well as Jewish perspectives. In addition to the deliberations found here, God and the Embryo includes a series of official statements on the issues from religious bodies. "Human Cloning and Human Dignity: An Ethical Inquiry," from the statement of the President's Council on Bioethics, concludes the book. The disputations will continue, but for anyone interested in the nuances of and religious perspectives that make their important contributions to these ethically challenging and important dialectics, God and the Embryo is an invaluable resource
