This 1991 book by a devoutly Christian molecular biologist gives a fairly detailed account of molecular biology with respect to genetics and embryology, conception and human development. He talks about how to distinguish between non-living and living, when life starts and when death occurs. His writing is not great, but it is readable and very good look at the science. The conclusion he comes to is that science cannot answer questions of value, only questions of what is physically happening.
