Dr. R.C. Sproul (19392017) was founder of Ligonier Ministries, an international Christian discipleship organization located near Orlando, Fla. He was also founding pastor of Saint Andrews Chapel in Sanford, Fla., first president of Reformation Bible College, and executive editor of Tabletalk magazine. His radio program, Renewing Your Mind, is still broadcast daily on hundreds of radio stations around the world and can also be heard online. Dr. Sproul contributed dozens of articles to national evangelical publications, spoke at conferences, churches, colleges, and seminaries around the world, and wrote more than one hundred books, including The Holiness of God, Chosen by God, and Everyones a Theologian. He also served as general editor of the Reformation Study Bible.
The book addresses the ethics involved, analyzes the pro-choice arguments, and offers a response and strategy. Throughout the book's three sections, issues are further broken down and assessed on a piece-by-piece basis.
Though the vast majority of the book feels unbiased and logical, leading terminology is sprinkled here and there, giving subtitle favoritism to the side of pro-life. The arguments, however, are quite strong, well researched and quite convincing
Overall, this book tackles the issues well, delivering everything it promises and more. I recommend this book to anyone wanting a good summary of the issues or to anyone wanting to be generally informed. Matthew J. Mimnaugh, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
This is an important book for all Christians interested in bringing their beliefs to bear upon the world around them. Abortion is one of the most critical issues of our day, and R.C. Sproul looks at it through the lenses of theology, philosophy, and reason. This book is refreshingly free of hyperbole, and yet does not compromise the truth.
"R.C. Sprouls rapier logic will put to flight rationalistic defenders of abortion. Those torn between conflicting claims about the humanity of the unborn, the role of government, and the rights of women will find this book particularly instructive."
"When I read R.C. Sprouls 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 seemingly silent about the plight of unborn children. Sprouls 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. Im happy to recommend the re-release of Dr. Sprouls book on this vital subject, and I pray God will use it to enlighten many new readers."
"R.C. Sprouls book on abortion is a classic text in the evangelical witness against the culture of death. I pray this Twentieth Anniversary Edition will awaken a new generation of Christians to the joyful duty of protecting the least of these, our Lord Jesus unborn brothers and sisters."
"R.C. Sproul covers the issues candidly and objectivelywithout the emotion and demagoguery that so often pervade the abortion debate. You are the jury; you decide the verdict."
"Staying silent on the issue of abortion is no longer an option. It is time for those who are respected and capable to speak out and say it straight. I know of no one who qualifies better than R.C. Sproul."
Classic Sproul! Logical, clear, fair, attempting to understand the pro-choice views 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 foreword of George Grant and you have a winner.
"I am delighted to see this Twentieth Anniversary Edition of Abortion: A Rational Look at an Emotional Issue. It was and continues to be an important contribution to the pro-life movement and to the defense of the sanctity of human life."
