Theological Bioethics Roundtable

During the Spring 2021 semester, CBHD continued our tradition of hosting theological bioethics roundtable book discussions. These sessions provide an opportunity for CBHD research staff to interact with graduate and doctoral students at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School so as to foster theological reflection and engagement in bioethics. The book for 2021 was O. Carter Snead, What It Means To Be Human: The Case For The Body In Public Bioethics. The discussion was facilitated by Wilson Jeremiah, ThM, Robert D. Orr Fellow and CBHD Research Analyst.
