Top positive review

This book will contain no surprises for the majority of Evangelical Christians. Stott argues in general for what might be considered fairly normal conservative positions, yet always filled out with grace and a desire for redemption.
However, I found John Wyatt's chapter on biotechnology somewhat dissatisfying, especially given its place immediately after a good chapter on abortion and euthanasia, in which Stott argues strongly for the sanctity of all life from the moment of conception. Wyatt then argues strongly in favour of stem cell research, without really mentioning the source of stem cells and the moral issues involved. The two chapters alongside each other seem incongruous.
