Tinkering with creation Tinkering with creation

The Promise and Perils of Genetic Engineering

by Van Dam, Cornelis, editor

The possibilities of human ingenuity and scientific advances seem to be limitless these days. Plants are genetically modified to produce food that meets predetermined criteria. Basic building blocks of animal life are being manipulated for healing human diseases and improving health. There is much talk of using the same techniques on humans. Is man in this age of genetic engineering tinkering with creation and playing God? What are the proper perimeters and limits for human inquiry so that the distinction of Creator and creature is maintained? The Burlington Reformed Study Centre organized public evenings to examine these issues. This paperback allows readers to benefit from that discussion.
