Tentatio 2003—Informed Consent

Tentatio Newsletter Archives

Named after Martin Luther’s understanding of the Latin word for “struggle,” the director emeritus of the CCB, Rev. Dr. Richard C. Eyer, penned issues of the Tentatio in response to some of the bioethical concerns that arose during his time as director. His responses still hold weight today as ethical debates over these issues and their impact on Christians’ daily lives still loom.
