Religious Voices on Stem Cells and Cloning (Washington D. C.: Georgetown University Press, 2003); Jane Maienschein, Whose View of Life? Embryos Cloning and Stem Cells (Cambridge, Mass.: Harvard University Press, 2003); Ted Peters, Science, Theology, and Ethics (Aldershot, Hants: Ashgate, 2003); Ted Peters, Karen Lebacqz and Gaymon Bennett, Sacred Cell?Why Christians Should Support Stem Cell Research (Lanham, Md.: Rowman & Littlefield, 2008); Peter Carnley, Reflections in Glass (Sydney: HarperCollins, 2004); Norman M. Ford and Michael Herbert, Stem Cells: Science, Medicine, Law and Ethics (Melbourne: St Paul’s, 2003); Nancy E. Snow, ed., Stem Cell Research: New Frontiers in Science and Ethics (Notre Dame, Ind.: University of Notre Dame Press, 2003); Scott B. Rae and Paul M. Cox, Bioethics: A Christian Approach in Pluralistic Age (Grand Rapids, Mich.: Eerdmans, 1999). 3 Peters’ analysis aims to respond to the question “Can souls be Xeroxed?” Peters, Science, 165–8. Some theologians also wrestle with this question. Rae and Cox, Bioethics, 114. 353 theological way … is to ask whether clones will have that elusive quality that we 4 know as ‘soul.’” Lebacqz argues that the notion of soul “is not an individual possession but a statement about relationship. Soul has to do with our standing before 5 God.” She concludes by highlighting the communal aspect, stating that “the real question is not whether a clone will be unique, or whether it will have soul … [t]he 6 question is why we would choose to do this in the human community.” Although Lebacqz’s response does not draw on an analysis of Paul’s anthropological terms, her attempt to articulate a theological anthropology and consider the question of human identity from the perspective of community and relationship with God is more appropriate than analysing whether Paul’s anthropological term, ѧѧѧѧѧ, has any ontological connotation.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
