The realm of redemption; studies in the doctrine of the nature of the church in contemporary Protestant theology by J. Robert Nelson( Book )

36 editions published between 1950 and 2017 in English and German and held by 490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Scarcely any concept of Christian doctrine in the present time stands so greatly in need of clarification from the ground up as that of the 'Church'. . . .It is a fact to be welcomed that Mr. Nelson has ventured to fix his eyes upon the problem of the Church form both sides--namely, from that of historical-Biblical research and that of theological reflection. ... Essentially this book is a circumspect and deliberate presentation of those previously produced writings which have worked out the questions sharply and taken a critical position towards the results. Therefore, it will be welcomed
On the new frontiers of genetics and religion by J. Robert Nelson( Book )

7 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Innovative Uses of Genetic Science in Human Medicine and health promotion are now provoking new ethical and religious concerns as well as raising hopes. As the public becomes increasingly aware of the scientific discoveries in the field of genetics - discoveries that appear at once promising and problematic - people are also beginning to ask important fundamental questions: What does this biological revolution have to do with religious beliefs and ethics? How should Christians interpret its significance? Drawing from the work of 260 scientific, medical, and religious professionals who met to discuss genetic research under the auspices of the nation's Human Genome Project in 1990 and 1992, J. Robert Nelson fairly and expertly probes such pressing topics as genetic counseling, prenatal diagnosis, the treatment of inherited diseases, and the temptation to seek eugenic improvements of human nature and capabilities. Religious critiques by leading experts from Jewish, Christian, and other traditions also help to explain the two sides of human genetic science: the possibilities for good and the dangers of abuse
