Journal of Religious Ethics 17 (2):161-179 (1989)

A lack of theological reflection in bioethics raises the question, ''Can bioethics be theological?" as necessarily prior to the narrower question, "Can bioethics be Evangelical?" Bioethics abounds with descriptive analysis, but normative analysis-especially such analysis based in theological concerns-is much less frequent and is not at the center of focus. Given this tangential relationship of theological inquiry to bioethics, how can a highly confessional movement like evangelicalism contribute to it? In this essay I contend that evangelical theological reflection can contribute to debate concerning bioethics, but only by modifying some of its past styles of ethical discourse among both the intellectual and the popular evangelical community
