Godsend is a "what if" thriller about the legal, ethical, and moral implications of human engineering. What would happen if human cloning became available? Could the option of resurrecting a lost loved one become an actual temptation? How do these ethical issues take on additional meaning for Christians who believe God created human beings in his image? Why are bio-future thrillers like Godsend, Gattica (which explores a world of designer children), and Alien Resurrection (in which alien and human DNA are mixed to form a hybrid being) so compelling?
