Product Description


Perhaps the most important contribution of this book is Peterson's retrieval of a strand of Christian theology that focuses on the human task to sustain, restore, and improve the conditions of our incomplete and damaged creation including humans as part of creation rather than to accept as God-given the state of the creation as we find it today. . . . Opens new terrain in bioethics for evangelical Christians. . . . One doesn't have to agree with every move Peterson makes here to recognize the great significance of this book for the current debate.

An intriguing blend of Christianity and science, highly recommended Jan. 16 2011
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
For the first time in history, mankind is the keeper of its own genetic destiny. "Changing Human Nature: Ecology, Ethics, Genes, and God" discusses humankind's control over its world and its relationship with God. James C. Peterson comes with an original opinion that God gave us this ability to use the world as our garden and to use it as we see fit, but there are things we should remember in our pursuits. "Changing Human Nature" is an intriguing blend of Christianity and science, highly recommended.
