Suffering Presence: Theological Reflections on Medicine, the Mentally Handicapped, and the Church

  Copy   BIBTEX


"Stanley Hauerwas challenges the dominant paradigm of contemporary ethics and views the moral crisis in medicine in this excellent collection of essays. He provides fresh insights into such diverse issues as whether the goal of medicine is to forestall death, how moral relations in a family may be redefined in response to novel reproductive techniques, and whether there are limits to the duties of parents of children who are disabled."--Cynthia B. Cohen, Ph. D., Associate for Ethical Studies, The Hastings Center.
