Changing Genes outlines several biblical principles that apply to genetics and includes a short primer on genetics, explaining things like what DNA is and how it works. Changing Genes raises questions about how to respond to new genetic technologies and outlines some legal and societal concerns about the future of genetic testing. The paper ends with practical suggestions on how to minister to those who have genetic diseases.
