surfing a tsunami of fluidity change.

Live and Let Live more. A Christian Doctor's Perspective on Euthanasia more. The paper examines the nature of spiritual formation from a biblical theological perspective.

A Christian Perspective on Biotechnology. Book Description This is the age of cutting edge biotechnology. With the completion of the mapping of the human genome in 2000, we are poised for a great leap in life-changing biotechnological discoveries and innovations. This is indeed a most commendable effort at communicating and teaching gospel truths contextually in -Asian forms!

About Dr. Alex: I am a Senior Consultant Paediatrician at the Johor Specialist Hospital, Johor Bahru and is an adjunct teaching faculty of Monash University School of Medicine in Malaysia. I obtained my basic medical degree from the Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (National University of Malaysia) and did my postgraduate training in Singapore, the United Kingdom and the United States. I have written a number of books: Random Musings from a Doctor's Chair: A Christian Doctor reflects on life and all that stuff (2005), A Good Day to Die: A Christian perspective on mercy killing (2005), Live and Let Live: A Christian perspective on biotechnology (2006) and Spiritual Formation on the Run (2009).

Euthanasia or mercy killing is an emotive and controversial subject. Tremendous advances in medical sciences and biomechanical technologies have prolonged our lives. Unfortunately, these same knowledge and technologies have prolonged our dying. Many today struggle with the issue of euthanasia or mercy killing, either for themselves or for their loved ones. Alex Tang MD approaches this issue from different perspectives.

Being a Christian with a recent rising philosophical curiosity, I purchased this book. I have to say it is a solid work in many respects. It is well laid out and deals in a survey fashion with the major philosophical questions of ontology, epistemology, theology, and ethics. The authors appear to do a good job presenting views in an unbiased and focused manner while also offering criticisms as well as conclusions at the ends of chapters which elucidate what position a Christian would hold on the subject matter in the chapter. I liked this text a lot. First, there are not so many Introductory Philosophy courses with Christian perspective on different issues. Geisler's text is very good.

The purpose of life from a Christian perspective. What is a truly purposeful life for a follower of Christ? A good reflection on a Christian's purpose. Let’s read again, For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. ActiveChristianity® by Brunstad Christian Church explores how God’s Word challenges and empowers us to live 100% according to His will, so we no longer need to fall in sin, but can come to a life of victory.

The biotechnology revolution has already begun. With the completion of the mapping of the human genome in 2000, we are poised for many life changing biotechnological discoveries and innovations. However despite its many promises, biotechnology has also generated many controversies. This book is a mdoest attempt to clarify some of these issues which include the following: When does human life begin? Should abortion be allowed? Should Christian couples suffering from infertility consider in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) or 'test tube babies? How should stem cell research and therapeutic cloning be regulated? Should reproductive cloning be banned? Should scientists be allowed to make changes or 'improve' the human blueprint?
