In this book, three academic philosophers explore "the ethics surrounding conflicting religious and medical practices by examining the specific case of health-related choices made by and for Christian Scientists."
The volume is unique in that it has a point-counterpoint format and three authors rather than two. One of the writers, DesAutels, was raised in the tradition of Christian Scientism and brings the debate to a much higher level than other articles and books in which nonphilosophers attempt to answer philosophical arguments.
