Playing God? by Professor Ted Peters

Book Description

Since the original publication of Playing God? in 1996, three developments in genetic technology have moved to the center of the public conversation about the ethics of human bioengineering. Cloning, the completion of the human genome project, and, most recently, the controversy over stem cell research have all sparked lively debates among religious thinkers and the makers of public policy. In this updated edition, Ted Peters illuminates the key issues in these debates and continues to make deft connections between our questions about God and our efforts to manage technological innovations with wisdom.

Books By Author Professor Ted Peters

God-The World's Future by Professor Ted Peters God-The World's Future, Paperback (July 2015)

God-The World's Future has been a proven textbook in systematic theology for over twenty years. This third edition is explicitly crafted to address our postmodern context and explains the whole body of Christian historical doctrine from within a "proleptic" framework.

Roots of Religion by Professor Ted Peters Roots of Religion, Hardback (December 2014)

The cognitive science of religion is a new discipline that looks at the roots of religious belief in the cognitive architecture of the human mind. This book deals with the philosophical and theological implications of the cognitive science of religion which grounds religious belief in human cognitive structures: religious belief is 'natural'.

Christian Moral Theology in the Emerging Technoculture by Professor Ted Peters Christian Moral Theology in the Emerging Technoculture, Hardback (January 2014)

Machines and gadgets not only weave the fabric of daily life, but more importantly embody philosophical and religious values which shape the contemporary moral vision-a vision that is often at odds with Christian convictions. This book critically examines those values.

Cyborg Selves by Professor Ted Peters Cyborg Selves, Hardback (May 2012)

Aims to clarify theological and philosophical dialogue on the posthuman by arguing that theologians must pay attention to which form of the posthuman they are engaging, and to demonstrate that a "posthuman theology" is not only possible, but desirable, when the vision of the posthuman is one which coincides with a theological vision of the human.
