'A work of excellent and accessible scholarship. A clear, coherent and contemporary treatment of bioethics in the Catholic tradition. Highly recommended to anyone interested in bioethics, Catholic or secular.' John Keown, Rose F. Kennedy Professor of Christian Ethics, Georgetown University
'These chapters show how the resources of the Catholic moral tradition can be brought to bear on novel and difficult bioethical problems. They will be of great use not least for those who wish to engage with a range of perspectives before coming to their own conclusions. I could think of no better or more thoughtful introduction to the discipline of Catholic bioethics.' Professor David Albert Jones, Director of the Anscombe Bioethics Centre
'Bishop Anthony Fisher's Catholic Bioethics for a New Millennium provides coherent and comprehensive coverage of many of the most disputed topics in bioethics. With both clarity and charity, Bishop Fisher dispels the myths and misunderstandings that obscure inherent dignity of the human person. He shows the compatibility of faith and reason and ably defends Catholic teaching against critiques from both dissenting theologians and secular philosophers.' Christopher Kaczor, Loyola Marymount University
'… serves as a wonderful example of the very best of theological and philosophical reflection on contemporary issues of interest.' The Tablet
