Review

“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.”

— Jim Daly

“R.C. Sproul’s 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.”

— Marvin Olasky

“When 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 seemingly 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

“R.C. Sproul’s 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.”

— Russell D. Moore

“R.C. Sproul covers the issues candidly and objectively—without the emotion and demagoguery that so often pervade the abortion debate. You are the jury; you decide the verdict.”

— John MacArthur

“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.”

— Chuck Swindoll

“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.”

— Peter Jones

“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.”

— John Jefferson Davis
