This volume proposes a move away from the universalized and general modern ethical method, as it is currently practiced in biomedical ethics, while aiming toward a decision making process rooted in an ontology of relationality. Moyse uses the theological ethics of Karl Barth, in conversation with a range of thinkers, to achieve this turn.

Reviews

"The book demonstrates careful research, detailed argumentation, and creative connections between various fields. ... Overall, I think Moyse succeeds in what he sets out to do. ... his work adeptly connects theology and bioethics in surprising and helpful ways. ... Moyse does an excellent job of showing how theology can interrupt and potentially transform bioethics in a way that refuses to retreat into abstractions and instead meets individual patients where they are: in the heat of crisis." (Jacob Shatzer, Ethics & Medicine, Vol. 33 (1), 2017)
