Bioethics: Happiness, Health, and Human Nature

Michael Poore

Michael Poore is founder and Executive Director of The Humanitas Project: A Center for Bioethics Education, located in Cookeville, Tennessee. He holds the Master of Arts in Religion from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.

As director of The Humanitas Project, he writes and speaks on a wide variety of topics related to bioethics and biotechnology as well as on issues related to Christian discipleship in a secular age.

Michael is also director of The Humanitas Forum on Christianity and Culture, a lecture series in Nashville, Tennessee. The Forum is designed to help Christians develop both an accurate understanding of contemporary culture and the ability to engage this culture on the basis of historic Christian convictions.

His passion is for a serious reassessment of the requirements for Christian discipleship: What does it mean to follow Jesus in a post-Christian culture?

Most importantly, Michael and his wife, Janet, have five home-schooled children-two in graduate school, two in college and one in high school.
