But what is flourishing—what does it mean to flourish? How does one flourish? And in particular, how are we, as Christians, to understand flourishing? Querying others outside the ethical and bioethical arena yielded a general response of cluelessness: most seemed unfamiliar with the term, let alone the concept. This launched a one and a half year journey through Scripture in search of a biblical perspective on human flourishing with which to frame and fill the content of the concept.
While the fruits of that labor and journey will be presented at the conference, I want to share a particular insight here. One note that resonated clearly throughout Scripture, although more loudly in the New Testament, is the relationship of suffering to flourishing.
Suffering, in Scripture, is not incongruent with flourishing; in fact, not uncommonly, flourishing is by way of suffering. Health Progress The contributors' ability to see the healing professions not only in terms of positive outcomes, but also in the context of our interdependence and mutual frailty suggests that the field of medical ethics is indeed reaching into its full human maturity.
America This book is to be praised and indeed read and discussed for its daring attempt to address the anthropological quandry, thereby moving the bioethical debate beyond its usual focus on rights, decision making, and meta- ethical theories. The collection will be helpful, not only to those engaged in medicine or bioethics, but to anyone reflecting on the meaning of human vulnerability, integrity, relationality and flourishing in the light of experiences of illness and healing.
