This paper examines the ethical views of John B. Cobb Jr. in his work 'Matters of Life and Death.' In this work, Cobb confronts several bioethical issues of relevance today from a Christian perspective. These issues are analyzed and then compared and contrasted to the ethical views provided by Robin Lovin and James Rachels respectively in 'Christian Ethics' and 'The Elements of Moral Philosophy.'

From the Paper:

"In the introduction to 'Matters of Life and Death' John B. Cobb Jr. writes 'As I have grown older I become more and more concerned that theologians should address the most difficult and controversial issues of their day.' In the book Cobb tackles four bioethical concerns that are both difficult and controversial: unity of creation and animal rights, debilitating illness and euthanasia, fetus value and the right of a mother to terminate pregnancy and non-marital sexual expression including heterosexuals and homosexuals."
