Abortion : A Rational Look at An Emotional Issue
Author: R. C. Sproul
In this book, Dr. R.C. Sproul employs his unique perspective as a highly experienced pastor-theologian and a trained philosopher to provide well-considered and compassionate answers to the difficult questions that attend termination of pregnancy. Dr. Sproul strives for a factual, well-reasoned approach informed by careful biblical scholarship. He considers both sides of this issue in terms of biblical teaching, civil law, and natural law. This edition includes a new foreword by Dr. George Grant and has been updated to reflect developments in the issue of abortion. Appendixes provide further background on the issue of when life begins and list sources for pro-life resources.
Classic Sproul! Logical, clear, fair, attempting to understand the pro-choice view while all the time making a solid, biblical pro-life apologetic that seeks both to convince the opponents but also to bring about in practical ways the end of this North American holocaust. Add to that the forward of George Grant and you have a winner. --Peter Jones: Executive director, truthXchange Escondido, CaliforniaR.C. Sproul covers the issues candidly and objectively-without the emotion and demagoguery that so often pervade the abortion debate. You are the jury; decide the verdict. --John MacArthur: Pastor-teacher, Grace Community Church Sun Valley, CaliforniaWhen I read R.C. Sproul's book on abortion twenty years ago, I was still a pastor. I recall how grateful I was that a respected theologian had spoken out so clearly on the critical issue of abortion. At the time, such voices were few and far between, with many evangelical theologians seeming silent about the plight of unborn children. Sproul's logic is sharp and penetrating, and his reliance on biblical authority is refreshing. The appendix, in which Dr. Jerome Lejeune offers courtroom testimony, is a great bonus. I'm happy to recommend the re-release of Dr. Sproul's book on this vital subject, and I pray God will use it to enlighten many new readers. --Randy Alcorn: Founder and director, Eternal Perspective Ministries Sandy, Oregon
