Cloning

By Christian Medical & Dental Associations® / December 5, 2018 / Comments Off on Cloning

Cloning is asexual reproduction in which an exact genetic copy of another plant, animal or human is made by fusing the DNA from an adult cell into a human egg from which the genetic material has been removed, causing it to divide and grow. By definition of the National Academy of Sciences, a clone is an exact genetic replica of another organism.

The “H” in Hospice Stands for “Hope”

By James Avery, MD / December 5, 2018 /

When I asked him if there were any other hopes he had at this stage of his life, he just shrugged and said, “Nope, all my hopes are in you guys – the medical profession.” He died three weeks later tragically clinging to tomorrow’s news.

A Biblical Perspective on End of Life Issues

By John Dunlop, MD / December 5, 2018 /

How should Christians come to the end of life? What is the appropriate use of technology to prolong life? How can we assure that when our time to die comes we will do it in answer to the call of God rather than because all of the technology of modern medicine has been exhausted?

The Gospel Comes with a House Key by Rosaria Butterfield

The Gospel Comes with a House Key

By Rosaria Butterfield / November 28, 2018 / Comments Off on The Gospel Comes with a House Key

What did God use to draw a radical, committed unbeliever to himself? Did God take her to an evangelistic rally? Or, since she had her doctorate in literature, did he use something in print? No, God used an invitation to dinner in a modest home, from a humble couple who lived out the gospel daily, simply, and authentically.

With this story of her conversion as a backdrop, Rosaria Butterfield invites us into her home to show us how God can use this same “radical, ordinary hospitality” to bring the gospel to our lost friends and neighbors. Such hospitality sees our homes as not our own, but as God’s tools for the furtherance of his kingdom as we welcome those who look, think, believe, and act differently from us into our everyday, sometimes messy lives-helping them see what true Christian faith really looks like.

Out of a Far Country by Christopher Yuan & Angela Yuan

Out of a Far Country

By Christopher Yuan / November 26, 2018 / Comments Off on Out of a Far Country

Christopher Yuan, the son of Chinese immigrants, discovered at an early age that he was different. He was attracted to other boys. As he grew into adulthood, his mother, Angela, hoped to control the situation. Instead, she found that her son and her life were spiraling out of control—and her own personal demons were determined to defeat her. Years of heartbreak, confusion, and prayer followed before the Yuans found a place of complete surrender, which is God’s desire for all families. Their amazing story, told from the perspectives of both mother and son, offers hope for anyone affected by homosexuality.

Vanishing Grace by Philip Yancey

Vanishing Grace

By Philip Yancey / November 21, 2018 / Comments Off on Vanishing Grace

Christians have proclaimed the good news about Jesus for centuries. But the good news isn’t sounding so good these days, at least to some. More and more surveys show that people view Christians as bearers of bad news, judgment, and intolerance. In Vanishing Grace, bestselling author Philip Yancey acknowledges the problem and then explores how we can respond with both grace and truth. He offers a discerning look at what contributes to a hostility toward Christians, and identifies three groups—pilgrims, artists, and activists—who can show us a different way.

Fingerprint Of God by Ron Bryce, MD

Fingerprint of God

By Ron Bryce, MD / October 23, 2018 / Comments Off on Fingerprint of God

In the Bible and in Christian culture, the church is so often described as the ”body of Christ” that the words seem to have lost all meaning. Far from being a tired, empty descriptor, however, physician and devoted Christian Dr. Ron Bryce has seen over his decades in the medical field that this popular analogy may be a literal definition of what the church should be. In Fingerprint of God: The Church As a Living Body, Bryce uses examples from science and nature to illuminate how God has placed His signature not only on all living things but also on His church. Bryce argues that by understanding what they are and living cooperatively with one another, the cells of the body of Christ can unite to fight off the diseases infecting the modern church, such as infighting, lack of charity, and lack of forgiveness.

Jungle Doctor Set – Volumes 1 thru 19 by Paul White

Jungle Doctor Set – Volumes 1 thru 19

By Paul White / September 26, 2018 / Comments Off on Jungle Doctor Set – Volumes 1 thru 19

Jungle Doctor books are classics for the next generation of missionaries, ages 10 and up, written by Dr. Paul White. Dr. White was born in New South Wales, Australia in 1910 and always wanted to go to Africa. He committed his life to Christ as a 16 year old and studied medicine as preparation for the mission field. He and his wife and son left for Tanganyika in 1938. Only two years later, his wife’s severe illness forced their return to Sydney. Within weeks Dr. White was invited to begin a weekly radio broadcast which spread throughout Australia as the “Jungle Doctor Broadcasts,” and those weekly scripts became the raw material for the Jungle Doctor hospital stories. Paul saw that although his plan to work in Africa for life was turned on its head, in God’s better plan he was able to reach more people by coming home than by staying in Africa. It was a great joy for him to meet people over the years who told him they were on their way overseas to work in missions because of his books. Set of 19 paperback books. Even when these show as “out of stock” we will make up sets from our single copies.

By Christian Medical & Dental Associations® / September 12, 2018 / Comments Off on Side By Side: Changing Lives for 30 Years

By Christian Medical & Dental Associations® / August 27, 2018 /

We were approaching the end of our fourth and final day in Alianza, Honduras, and our team still had a lot of flippers (partial dentures) to make. We were particularly focused on a flipper for 16-year-old Maria. Her top two front teeth were extracted and the other two front teeth filled because of extensive decay. Unfortunately, soda is cheaper than bottled water in Honduras, and decay is rampant.

Outside the Box: Doctors in Nontraditional Careers

By Christian Medical & Dental Associations® / August 27, 2018 /

My favorite part of medicine is the moments I spend in direct patient care and in talking with specialists about patients. All the rest of it I find pretty unsatisfying. I feel limited by my inefficiency as well as pretty painful hand arthritis, so I had mixed feelings about the prospect of increasing my hours doing medicine after my kids were launched.

Making Disciples in Africa for Africa

By Christian Medical & Dental Associations® / August 27, 2018 /

Five hundred million heathens have not yet been evangelized, so it is computed!
