The timeless human desire to be more beautiful, intelligent, healthy, athletic, or young has given rise to technologies of human enhancement. Some condemn these enhancements as a new kind of cheating, promising rewards without effort and depriving us most of all of what it means to be authentic human beings. "Transhumanists," on the other hand, insist that to be truly human is to be restless with possibilities, always eager to transcend biological limits. In this volume Ronald Cole-Turner has assembled a group of seasoned and emerging scholars to bring fresh insight into how these technologies are already reshaping the future of Christian life and hope.
