Live - Keswick Convention 2019 - 24 July 9.30am - Lecture 2 - Contemporary Challenges in Bioethics
The last 30 years have seen dramatic advances in biology. From sequencing the human genome to the ability to edit our genomes, we now have technologies with the potential for preventing some genetic diseases and even enhancing human capabilities. These raise ethical issues that the Bible’s writers could not have imagined. How then do we develop a Christian approach? These scientific advances raise questions about what it means to be a “normal” human and what is “healthy”, and some people talk about “playing at God”. In this lecture, Prof Fox will examine some of these discoveries and explore some Christian responses.
Prof Keith Fox is Associate Director of The Faraday Institute in Cambridge and Professor of Biochemistry at Southampton University, where his research interests concern the properties of DNA. He is a former chairman of Christians in Science. He is passionate about the positive interaction between science and Christian belief, and has special interests in bioethics and genetics. He is a licensed lay minister in the Church of England. He is married to Sheila and they have three adult children.

7 July '19 Ben Cadoux-Hudson - When we are hurt or demands are made of us, our natural instinct is to say, 'Revenge! Revenge! I must have – I will have - revenge!' But instead as followers of Christ we are to look to his example and respond with counter-cultural generosity.
