Summary

Genetic disease and birth defects pose a unique set of concerns for affected individuals and their families. The need of these individuals for pastoral care--guidance for difficult decisions, bereavement counseling, and support--has opened a new area of ministry for pastors and pastoral counselors of all faiths. This ministry occupies the intersection of the disciplines of pastoral care, bioethics, and genetic counseling. This bibliography is intended both to introduce pastors, pastoral care workers, and educators to this unique dimension of health care and to assist them in extending their knowledge of the field. With the exception of a few classic articles, only material from the last ten years is included in this edition. The bibliographies are classified into four chapters: (1) "New Frontiers in Biology: Ethical, Legal, and Theological Concerns"; (2) "Clergy Involvement in Genetic Counseling"; (3) "The Religious Community and Persons With Disability"; and (4) "Support for Families."
