"Principlism has gained a remarkable and unhealthy power in medical ethics and has long been in need of a thorough Christian examination and critique. Drawing on years of experience in medical practice, extensive research and deep reflection, James Rusthoven here not only meets this need but takes to a new level a biblically rooted and theologically rich covenantal approach to bioethics. Theologians, doctors, and bioethicists will all learn much from this significant book."
--Andrew Goddard, Associate Director, Kirby Laing Institute for Christian Ethics, Cambridge
"Rusthoven writes as both a long-term medical practitioner and someone with impressive credentials in the philosophical, theological, and historical dimensions of bioethics. He brings his considerable experience and broad knowledge of the bioethical literature to bear on a unique proposal for reorienting the field in the light of the key biblical category of covenant. I find his work altogether admirable."
--Albert Wolters, Emeritus Professor of Religion and Theology, Redeemer University College
"Jim Rusthoven provides a lucid and penetrating critique of modern biomedical ethics, highlighting the poverty and incoherence of 'lowest common denominator' principles-based approaches. He develops an alternative biblical covenantal framework for medicine that reflects the profoundly relational nature of our human calling in the light of the creative and redemptive purposes of the triune God. I strongly recommend this stimulating and original book."
