Endorsements of Bioethical Issues - Understanding and
Responding to the Culture of Death



‘Thoroughly biblical, highly readable, concise yet remarkably comprehensive – a heartfelt call for all Christians to engage with bioethics.  I hope many will both read it and respond to it.’

  - Dr Trevor Stammers, Programme Director, Bioethics and Medical Law, St Mary's University, London.


‘This revised and expanded edition of Dr Ling's still concise but broad-ranging book on Life issues is excellent.   It is important for thinking Christians to keep abreast of the vital ethical issues that it covers so clearly.  We give thanks to God for such an informative and challenging book.’

  - Gary Brady, Pastor of Childs Hill Baptist Church, London.


‘While medical advances have brought innumerable blessings to people in the last fifty years, they have also spawned a dizzying world of questions about life and death.  John Ling’s Bioethical Issues is a welcome help to navigate these dangerous waters, offering a map of current medical options, and the compass of wisdom to discern what is right.’

  - Dr Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan.


‘This is a wonderful resource.  In the complex and fast-moving arena of medical science, John Ling explains the ethical issues, sets out the biblical principles, and points us towards an appropriate response.  We honour God by defending and cherishing human life, not only within our own families and church fellowships but also in our nation as an expression of our love for our neighbours.’

  - Bill James, Pastor of Emmanuel Evangelical Church, Leamington Spa.


‘The book is splendid: bang up-to-date and learned but wonderfully accessible to the layman.  The style is so lively and engaging that it is a delight to read.  I have read it from cover to cover with delight and admiration.  We are ordering copies for all the Education team and the heads of Care and Communications.’

  - Professor Jack Scarisbrick, Chairman of LIFE.

‘John Ling has written a powerful book, Bioethical Issues - Understanding and Responding to the Culture of Death (Day One), a pervasive and updated revision of an earlier book, but now 312 pages in length.  It will become the definitive work by a Christian on the subject of the conception and development of life in the womb.’

  - Geoff Thomas, Pastor of Alfred Place Baptist Church, Aberystwyth.
