"Stanley Hauerwas challenges the dominant paradigms of contemporary ethics and views the moral crisis in medicine in this excellent collection of essays. He provides fresh insights into such diverse issues as whether the goal of medicine is to forestall death, how moral relations in a family may be redefined in response to novel reproductive techniques, and whether there are limits to the duties of parents of children who are disabled." --Cynthia B. Cohen, Ph.D., J.D., The Hastings Center

"A well-formed theological perspective that illuminates the moral life, particularly medical care and the care of children and the handicapped." --James S. Childress, University of Virginia
