The theology of genetic engineering

The New Genesis, a theology of genetic engineering, a 1993 book arguing that theology and genetic engineering need to go hand in hand, that we could not accept a technology such as farming as moral and reject a technology like genetic engineering as immoral. Cole-Turner thinks genetic engineering helps us do God’s work, and there should be a theological discussion of it.

I tend to agree. I think too often we think God prefers Abel to Cain in all things, a notion of conservatism that belies the development of the Bible.
