Books

I’ve written three books which seek to explore a range of topics in medical ethics from the perspective of the historic Christian faith.

My first book explores a range of ethical dilemmas from the beginning and end of life: abortion, genetics, foetal screening, reproductive technology, physician-assisted suicide and many more. Writing out of a deep conviction that the Bible’s view of our humanness points a way forward, I try to suggest how healthcare professionals, churches and individuals can respond to some of the most difficult challenges in medicine.

In this short book I try to navigate the arguments around euthanasia engaging both hearts and heads, and above all the Biblical narrative. There are practical and compassionate alternatives to assisted suicide and, as many who have gone before us have found, the end of our lives on this earth may turn out to be a strange and wonderful opportunity for growth and healing.

This is a companion volume to Right To Die?, written for a person who is facing the diagnosis of a terminal illness and for relatives and carers. It provides practical resources from both a medical and a Christian pastoral perspective on how to approach the last months, weeks and days of one’s life. My conviction is that dying can be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for fulfilling dreams, healing relationships, leaving a personal legacy and encouraging others. READ MORE

I have also uploaded my own short reviews of influential and significant books by other writers who are grappling with medical ethics, advances in technology and the interplay between science and faith. READ MORE
