Format: Hardcover
David Novak is one of the premiere Jewish scholars of this generation. And this book shows why. Combining a thoroughgoing knowldege of traditional sources along with a deep comprehension of philosophy and theology, Dr. Novak brings his erudition to the task of illuminatiing one of the most important issues of our day: the sanctity of human life. Tackling three topics under this general heading, namely, stem cell research, socialized medicine, and physician-assisted suicide, Dr. Novak shows how each issue requires separate and careful treatment. His opinions will challenge ideologues on both the right and the left on the political/religious spectrum. But his allegiance is to the sources, not to an ideological consistency. Perhaps more than anything else, Dr. Novak takes pains to demonstrate how what some consider exclusively religious matters actually have a legitimate place in the public square.
