John Macquarrie's natural theology : the grace of being by Georgina Morley( Book )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2019 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Title first published in 2003. John Macquarrie has been a major contributor in the theological world for more than forty years, but as yet very little secondary material on his work has appeared. This book offers an insightful introduction to Macquarrie's theology, arguing that at its heart is a systematic theology of gift. Tracing the development of his thought from its early existentialism to the social and world-affirming perspectives of later writings, this book shows how these developments emerge in dialogue with contemporary thinkers. Morley demonstrates how Macquarrie's theology mediates between two traditionally opposing theologies of gift and being, centring on the doctrines of God and of human being, and reaching its fullest expression in Christology, with Christ as the focal point of two personal movements of self-giving - divine and human. Macquarrie himself contributes a Foreword."--Provided by publisher
On being a theologian : reflections at eighty by John Macquarrie( Book )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume has been produced to celebrate the eightieth birthday in June 1999 of Professor John Macquarrie. It is indeed a Festschrift with a difference, in that most of the material has been supplied by Professor Macquarrie himself. The project was initiated by Dr. John Morgan, President of the Theological Graduate Foundation in the United States, whose idea it was to produce a book which would give a picture of what it is like to live and work as a theologian. He and his associates engaged in conversation with Professor Macquarrie in a relaxed atmosphere over a period of five days, and organized the resulting material into this unusual tribute. The reflections recorded here are personal, specific and demonstrative of both Professor Macquarrie's genuine humility and his passion for his life's work."--Jacket

What is "Moral Distress" in Nursing and How Should We Respond to It? by Georgina Morley( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Within this thesis, I explore the concept of ‘moral distress’ in nursing using both theoretical and empirical methods. Using a feminist empirical bioethics methodology, I explore issues of voice, power, responsibility and relationships and the way in which these impact nurses’ experiences of moral distress. <br/><br/>I present qualitative data from interviews with 21 critical care nurses in which they describe different moral events that caused them to feel the various emotions of ‘distress’. Using the empirical findings and tort law, I suggest causal criteria which explains the causal story between the moral event and distress, determining whether one’s distress ought to be regarded as moral distress. I argue for a broader conceptualisation of moral distress based upon the empirical findings and I provide normative reasons why we ought to accept this broader understanding. I argue that due to the complexity of clinical-ethical decision-making and prognostication that moral distress ought to be divorced from ‘knowledge of the right thing’, that this broader definition may encourage moral dialogue between healthcare professionals, and that to disregard these experiences as moral distress deprives these individuals of the tools to make sense of their own moral experiences. <br/><br/>I construct a moral distress model which captures the definition of moral distress, the compounding factors that exacerbate/mitigate moral events, responses to moral distress and the interaction of moral distress to other related concepts. Finally, I provide recommendations for ways we can respond to moral distress in clinical practice and policy, and possible areas for further research
Is the art of nursing dying? A call for political action( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Nightingale conceived of the art of nursing as the ability of the nurse to positively influence a patient's environment to foster healing. By this definition, the art of nursing is at risk. Rather than impacting their circumstances, nurses are being overwhelmed by them. The challenges faced by nurses currently have many parallels with historical examples of Nightingale's work. In this article, examples of modern nursing workforce challenges are contrasted with situations faced by Nightingale. Like Nightingale, modern nurses are being required to justify their worth in order to receive funding and renumeration for their work. Nursing work is being devalued, which is reflected in nursing education policy and changes to professional structures. In the midst of these difficulties, nurses can take inspiration from Nightingale as a political advocate and activist. Modern nurses face a call to action, to defend the professional nature of nursing and regain their political influence. Specific strategies for political action are discussed and nurses are urged to engage politically in order to regain control of their environment and the art of nursing
