    The Analogy of Grace: Karl Barth's Moral Theology.Gerald P. McKenny - 2010 - Oxford University Press.
    Once considered inimical to ethics, Karl Barth's theology is now rightly recognized for the central role ethics plays in it. But can Barth be safely placed in the mainstream tradition of Christian moral theology or does he offer a challenge to the latter? Gerald McKenny argues that the claim that God not only establishes the good from eternity but also brings it about in time is of fundamental importance to Barth's mature ethics. The good confronts us from the site of (...)

    Biotechnology and the Normative Significance of Human Nature: A Contribution From Theological Anthropology.Gerald McKenny - 2013 - Studies in Christian Ethics 26 (1):18-36.
    Does human nature possess normative significance? If so, what is it and what implications does it have for biotechnology? This essay critically examines three answers to these questions. One answer focuses on human nature as the ground of natural goods or goods dependent on human nature, another answer finds normative significance in the indeterminacy or malleability of human nature, and a third answer treats human nature as a natural sign of divine grace. Kathryn Tanner, who offers the second answer, and (...)

    Human Nature and Biotechnological Enhancement: Some Theological Considerations.Gerald McKenny - 2019 - Studies in Christian Ethics 32 (2):229-240.
    Theologies of human nature routinely reflect the insights of evolutionary biology, for which human biological nature is variable, changing and indeterminate in its boundaries with other living things. However, these theologies do not yet reflect what biotechnology discloses about human biological nature, namely, that it is malleable and indeterminate in its boundaries with machines. Does respect for human biological nature as created by God, or protection of the human person whose nature it is, require us to refrain from taking advantage (...)

    A Bad Disease, a Fatal Cure: Why Sterilization is Permissible and the Autonomy of Medicine is Not 1.Gerald Mckenny - 1998 - Christian Bioethics 4 (1):100-109.
    The debate in this issue regarding the Roman Catholic condemnation of the morality of sterilization is puzzling for Protestants. As I will argue the puzzlement arises on two grounds. First, why would anyone object to direct sterilization for the cure or prevention of disease? Second, if one wanted to challenge such an objection on moral grounds why would one turn to medicine to do so? For Christian ethics there is nothing wrong in principle with direct sterilization when there are good (...)

    Genre and Persuasion in Religious Ethics: An Introduction.Gerald McKenny - 2005 - Journal of Religious Ethics 33 (3):397 - 407.
    Issues of genre and persuasion are central to ethical thought and practice. Until recently, there has been an asymmetry between religious ethics and moral philosophy in regard to these issues. Renewed attention to these issues in moral philosophy creates a new context for their consideration in religious ethics--one in which the relation of religious ethics and moral philosophy is less determinate than it has been in previous discussions. The four essays that comprise this Focus Section reflect this new context while (...)

    Finitude, Freedom and Biomedicine: An Engagement with Gilbert Meilaender’s Bioethics.Gerald McKenny - 2017 - Studies in Christian Ethics 30 (2):148-157.
    A fundamental theme in Gilbert Meilaender’s work on bioethical issues is the relationship between the ethical claims of finitude and of freedom. This article identifies two ways in which Meilaender articulates this relationship and proposes a third way which avoids the limitations of the first two ways while serving Meilaender’s purpose, which is to redress what he sees as an imbalance in favor of the claims of freedom over those of finitude in contemporary biomedicine and bioethics. The article ends by (...)

    A Qualified Bioethic: Particularity in James Gustafson and Stanley Hauerwas.Gerald P. McKenny - 1993 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 18 (6):511-529.
    Most theoretical approaches in bioethics begin with a theory that articulates and defends basic principles or rules that are more or less systematically related and that seek to yield more or less precise conclusions with regard to specific acts, cases, or policies. Concerns about the agent and descriptions of the context of action stand on the margins of the theory. This is ironic, given the overwhelming importance and impact the training of health care professionals has upon them and upon the (...)

  15. Biotechnology, Human Nature, and Christian Ethics.Gerald McKenny - 2018 - Cambridge University Press.
    In public debates over biotechnology, theologians, philosophers, and political theorists have proposed that biotechnology could have significant implications for human nature. They argue that ethical evaluations of biotechnologies that might affect human nature must take these implications into account. In this book, Gerald McKenny examines these important yet controversial arguments, which have in turn been criticized by many moral philosophers and professional bioethicists. He argues that Christian ethics is, in principle, committed to some version of the claim that human nature (...)
