Veritas Institute for the
Study of Bioethics and Public Values
The Veritas Institute
for the Study of Bioethics and Public Values (www.veritasinstitute.com)
is an international leader in providing informed answers to the moral,
ethical, and philosophical challenges that lie at the intersection of
Christian faith and contemporary culture.
As a cultural apologetic ministry, our purpose is to examine and
engage some of the most pressing issues of our day and to address them from
the vantage point of Christian conviction.
Our work is intended to meet the growing worldwide need for an
informed and sensitive biblical-theological perspective on questions of
moral and ethical choice in business, government, law, medicine, education
and public policy.
Of particular concern to the Institute is the
array of emerging bioethical issues that are increasingly challenging
societies around the world, including assisted reproductive technologies,
abortion, physician-assisted suicide, euthanasia, cloning, genetic
engineering, stem cell research, the moral status of the human embryo,
health care allocation and distribution, alternative medicine, and
Each year dozens of churches, seminaries,
universities, medical schools, hospitals, conferences, camps, and
organizations from around the world, representing a wide variety of
denominations, interests, and academic affiliations, host a Veritas seminar
series to explore the relationship between Christianity and culture.
