"Intellectually sophisticated, theologically sound, clinically wise, and eminently practical..." @britedivinity… https://t.co/qlZGocFVa3
Author(s): Calum MacKellar
Why are human embryos so important to many Christians? What does theology say concerning the moral status of these embryos?
Answers to these questions can only be obtained by considering the manner in which Christian theology understands the great theme of the image of God. Calum MacKellar examines the most important aspects in which this image, and the related Christian notion of personhood, can be used in the context of theological arguments relating to the moral status of the human embryo.
Thoughtful in approach and ecumenical in perspective, MacKellar combines a thorough knowledge of the science of embryology with a broad knowledge of the theological implications.
Calum MacKellar is the Director of Research of a medical ethics charity in Scotland. He is a Fellow of the Academy of the Center for Bioethics & Human Dignity at Trinity International University, USA. Since 2010 he has also been a Visiting Lecturer and Visiting Professor in Bioethics at St Mary's University in London.
"Calum MacKellar has produced an erudite and engaging volume exploring how the image of God is reflected in the human embryo. Carefully argued it is essential reading for Christian students and scholars and students with an interest in bioethics." -- Agneta Sutton, Heythrop College, University of London, UK
