From Library Journal Chinnici begins with brief stories of four women who found traditional Christian imagery and language alienating. She addresses primarily the reader whose consciousness of exclusion is beginning to be raised, and who needs to distinguish church from religion and find a religious perspective which affirms the full humanity and equal dignity of women. New and personal images which breathe new life into the faith are essential for this affirmation. While written from a Roman Catholic perspective, the book will be useful to those of other traditions as well. Recommended especially for public libraries.

Paperback Princeton Univ Pr

From Library Journal Procreative freedom is "the freedom to decide whether or not to have offspring and to control the use of one's reproductive capacity." Robertson, a legal bioethicist who teaches at the University of Texas at Austin's law school, argues that the principle of procreative liberty should be used to determine the ethics and legalities of the many controversial issues surrounding reproductive technology. While obviously favoring his procreative liberty approach, the author allows some discussion of conflicting viewpoints. Robertson's position may not be universally accepted, but his works are regularly cited and his perspective is given significant coverage in many books on this topic. In addition to the much-discussed issues of abortion and surrogacy, Robertson also discusses new issues such as fetal tissue transplants and prenatal genetic screening. While the basic technological facts in this book may become dated, the legal philosophy presented may serve as a foundation for future considerations. Highly recommended for academic and special libraries. Tina Neville, Univ. of South Florida at St. Petersburg Lib. Copyright 1994 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. Book Description Cloning, genetic screening, embryo freezing, in vitro fertilization, Norplant, RU486--these are the technologies revolutionizing our reproductive landscape. Through the lens of procreative liberty--meaning both the freedom to decide whether or not to have children as well as the freedom to control one's reproductive capacity--John Robertson, a leading legal bioethicist, analyzes the ethical, legal, and social controversies surrounding each major technology and opens up a multitude of fascinating questions: Do frozen embryos have the right to be born? Should parents be allowed to select offspring traits? May a government force welfare recipients to take contraceptives? Robertson's arguments examine the broad range of consequences of each reproductive technology and offers a timely, multifaceted analysis of the competing interests at stake for patients, couples, doctors, policymakers, lawyers, and ethicists.

Amazon.com The Vietnam War continues to play itself out in fiction, autobiography, and history books, but no American author has captured the experiences of the Vietnamese themselves--and caught their voices--more tellingly than Robert Olen Butler, who won the Pulitzer Prize in 1993 for A Good Scent From a Strange Mountain. The 15 stories collected here, all written in the first person, blend Vietnamese folklore, the terrible, lingering memories of war, American pop culture and family drama. Butler's literary ventriloquism, as he mines the experiences of a people with a great literary tradition of their own, is uncanny; but his talents as a writer of universal truths is what makes this a collection for the ages. From Publishers Weekly Awarded the Pulitzer Prize for fiction, Butler's 15 stories, set in the Vietnamese enclaves of suburban New Orleans, capture the voices of people who have lost their homeland and are trying to adapt to an alien culture.

Paperback Westminster John Knox Press

From Library Journal A dozen Christian theologians tackle the question of human cloning and offer diverse views of whether cloning is "playing God" and whether it is something to be welcomed as a scientific advance or feared as a manipulation of creation. While all 12 agree this question needs to be discussed before human cloning becomes a reality, they offer a wide range of views. The contributors represent various Christian denominations. Most are present or former seminary professors; two are directors of church "think-tanks" (representing the Church of Scotland and Roman Catholicism). Two of the 12 are women: one says no to cloning; one sees it as a way to undercut male hegemony and solve the problem of same-sex couples who want a child who possesses the genes of at least one of them. Overall, the collection offers provocative views of an emerging moral issue. Highly recommended.?Augustine J. Curley, Newark Abbey, N.J. Copyright 1998 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Amazon.com I and Thou, Martin Buber's classic philosophical work, is among the 20th century's foundational documents of religious ethics. "The close association of the relation to God with the relation to one's fellow-men ... is my most essential concern," Buber explains in the Afterword. Before discussing that relationship, in the book's final chapter, Buber explains at length the range and ramifications of the ways people treat one another, and the ways they bear themselves in the natural world. "One should beware altogether of understanding the conversation with God ... as something that occurs merely apart from or above the everyday," Buber explains. "God's address to man penetrates the events in all our lives and all the events in the world around us, everything biographical and everything historical, and turns it into instruction, into demands for you and me." Throughout I and Thou, Buber argues for an ethic that does not use other people (or books, or trees, or God), and does not consider them objects of one's own personal experience. Instead, Buber writes, we must learn to consider everything around us as "You" speaking to "me," and requiring a response. Buber's dense arguments can be rough going at times, but Walter Kaufmann's definitive 1970 translation contains hundreds of helpful footnotes providing Buber's own explanations of the book's most difficult passages. --Michael Joseph Gross Book Description Martin Buber's I and Thou has long been acclaimed as a classic. Many prominent writers have acknowledged its influence on their work; students of intellectual history consider it a landmark; and the generation born since World War II considers Buber as one of its prophets. The need for a new English translation has been felt for many years. The old version was marred by many inaccuracies and misunderstandings, and its recurrent use of the archaic "thou" was seriously misleading. Now Professor... read more

Paperback Oxford University Press

From Library Journal Glinert (Hebrew and Jewish studies, Univ. of London) has brought together a collection of more than 600 entries on "the best known and most lovable Hebrew words and sayings." Although the style is light-hearted, the author knows his subject. The arrangement is alphabetical according to an excellent transliteration. Entries range from the familiar Bar Mitzvah and chutzpah to rachmanut ("compassion") and tsarr gidul banim ("the stress of raising children"). Definitions are drawn from literature, folklore, and history and from everyday and esoteric sources. Glinert delights in sharing punchy anecdotes and humorous stories. Nor does he slight etymology. An introductory essay surveys the fate of Hebrew from its ancient beginnings to the present, a fate which parallels that of the Jewish people. A significant virtue of this book is the author's clear explanation of the difference between Hebrew and Yiddish. He relates the history and development of each language and notes their intersecting points. This title will be welcomed on its own merits for its easy readability and informative entries. One of the few on the subject available to readers of English, it makes no pretense of being comprehensive.

From Library Journal Despite his avowed dislike of reading fugitive journalism, Lewis contributed 19 pieces to newspapers and magazines between 1940 and 1962. His topics ranged from the oddly obtuse "On Living in an Atomic Age" (1948) to the prescient "On Sex in Literature" (1962). In this Sunday Telegraph piece he advocates an end to all "moral censorship" of literature even if "realms of filth" should result. Lewis's ability to drive swiftly to the heart of such topics as prudery, pleasure, and equality is displayed in these articles. While they add little of substance to his canon, they merit notice as masterly examples of Lewis's talent for establishing instant rapport with his readers and using it to lead them in directions they might otherwise have been reluctant to go. Barbara J. Dunlap, City Coll. Lib., CUNY Copyright 1987 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Book Description A trained philosopher and intellectual historian as well as a writer of genius, C. S. Lewis was one of the most lucid, profound, and eloquent critics of the reductive scientific materialism that has helped make the twentieth century so destructive and confused. The Restitution of Man examines the conflict between scientific materialism and the Christian philosophical tradition as it has taken place since the seventeenth century. It examines Lewis's role as inheritor of and spokesman of this tradition and as an articulate opponent of reductive naturalism and "the abolition of man" that materialistic ideologies always entail. In probing the breadth of Lewis's writings, Michael Aeschliman shows why Lewis's apologetic for the Christian view of man is a precious resource for the transmission of human sanity, ethics, and wisdom in an age that has frequently ignored or obliterated all three. This revised edition of Aeschliman's acclaimed study includes a new foreword by George Gilder and a new afterword by the author. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
