MEDIA REVIEWS

"It's time for religious folks to take a look at their bodies. Just how valuable is our body? It's time to ask this, because transhumanists are proposing a more highly evolved bodiless existence. Mercer and Maher ask us: do we really want to go there?" - Ted Peters, Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences, Graduate Theological Union, USA

"Technological progress entails manipulating nature for our own ends, so is easily seen by people of faith as challenging the wisdom of the Creator. But were we not created with the ability and desire to engage in technology? Was it a sin to develop fire, or medicine? These essays will forcefully reassure readers that further technological progress, even if sometimes burdened with the unnecessarily scary label 'transhumanism,' will also be God's work." - Aubrey de Grey, Chief Science Officer, SENS Research Foundation, UK
