       Theologically grounding his study in the doctrine of the Incarnation, ethicist Brent Waters presents a study on the moral life of the Christian in relationship to the rapidly advancing field of biotechnology. In, This Mortal Flesh, he argues that in many respects, medicine and/or healthcare often serve as autonomous religions in today's society without respect for it's congruity with Christianity. Waters specifically pinpoints what he sees as the desire to preserve life exhaustively and argues this philosophical approach to medicine is 'adverse to core Christian beliefs and convictions.' Furthermore, Waters engages the Post Human Project, questioning whether or not Christian ethical thinking has anything to say to those who deny the necessity of human mortality. Engaging, challenging, and eye-opening, this work will be a valuable asset for professors, students, health care professionals, chaplains, pastors and anyone else who has a stake in the direction of modern medicinal bioethics.

'This Mortal Flesh represents the distillation of much fine thinking. The result is an unusually illuminating display of Christian wisdom concerning technological ambitions that puts in question the meaning of humanity itself.'
-Robert Song
Senior Lecturer in Christian Ethics, Durham University
