Divine Morals by Joseph Huneycutt

Divine Morals

At the Roots of Christian Bioethics: Critical Essays on the Thought of H. Tristram Engelhardt, Jr.
edited by Ana Smith Iltis and Mark J. Cherry
Scrivener Publishing, 2009
(336 pages, $44.95, hardcover)

reviewed by Joseph Huneycutt

In one sense this book is a Festschrift by fifteen colleagues, friends, and former students of Tristram Engelhardt, who at 70 is Professor in the Department of Philosophy at Rice University and Professor Emeritus in the Baylor College of Medicine. Yet some contributors—Christopher Tollefsen, Gerald McKenny, and others—write in respectful disagreement.
