This accessible and timely book uses a Christian perspective to explore ethical debates about nature. It offers a detailed exploration of humanity's treatment of the natural world from a Christian perspective. It covers a range of ethical debates, including current controversies about the environment, animal rights, biotechnology, consciousness, and cloning. It sets the immediate issues in the context of underlying theological and philosophical assumptions. Complex scientific issues are explained in clear student-friendly language.
