Very helpful

With deep biblical roots and solid logical arguments, this "critical concern book" from 1987 takes a hard look at abortion and the Evangelical position on it. Excellent in defending the personhood of the unborn, also good in presenting a biblical pro-life theology, this is a thoughtful book. The final two chapters were the most poignant and are worthy of rereading.

Dr. Fowler leads the way!

As always, Dr. Paul Fowler leads the way with his excellent biblical knowledge and balanced theology. Having personally learned from this great Biblical Scholar while a student at Knox, I can only give him the highest ratings and the deepest gratitude for instilling in us his great hunger for a strong biblical theology. Dr. Fowler, thanks again, from one of your spiritual children.

An honest treatment of Evangelical ambivalence

It is too bad this book is out of print. It is/was an honest history of how Evangelicals helped legalize abortion in the United States.Fowler mentions what many Evangelicals try to conceal or forget. i.e. in the late 60's many of them were 'pro-choice' and clamoring for relaxing the laws against abortion.His treatment of Christianity Today's 1968 symposium on abortion and birth control is excellent. It was then that the greatest minds in the Evangelical world got together to discuss abortion (as if the topic had never been addressed in the 1,935 years of Christianity prior to that time).They concluded NOTHING, only that abortion laws needed to be relaxed, particularly in the cases of failed birh control and handicapped fetuses.Fowler documents graphically the 'about-face' of prominent Evangelicals such as Dr. Norman Geisler, and Jim Wallis. I wonder if they appreciated it.
