Catholic bioethics for a new millennium by Anthony Fisher( Book )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Can the Hippocratic and Judeo-Christian traditions be synthesized with contemporary thought about practical reason, virtue and community to provide real-life answers to the dilemmas of healthcare today? Bishop Anthony Fisher discusses conscience, relationships and law in relation to the modern-day controversies surrounding stem cell research, abortion, transplants, artificial feeding and euthanasia, using case studies to offer insight and illumination. What emerges is a reason-based bioethics for the twenty-first century; a bioethics that treats faith and reason with equal seriousness, that shows the relevance of ancient wisdom to the complexities of modern healthcare scenarios and that offers new suggestions for social policy and regulation. Philosophical argument is complemented by Catholic theology and analysis of social and biomedical trends, to make this an auspicious example of a new generation of Catholic bioethical writing which has relevance for people of all faiths and none"--

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A collection of talks and homilies by Archbishop Anthony Fisher, often on the occasion of a terrorist act, or the anniversary of a military battle e.g. Anzac Day. Part One - War & Terror - considers the aims of those who commit atrocities, and explores the causes and effects. Part Two - Peace & Hope - examines whether it is possible to maintain ideals of non-violence in the face of this, and proposes that it is only in solidarity and compassion that we can build lasting peace. The importance of just legal frameworks and honest ecumenism, are studied, as well as the psychology and spirituality needed to maintain Easter Hope in the midst of such experiences. Brings a Christian perspective to the horrors of war and terror
