I read this book several years ago, and enjoyed it. There was a lot of very biblical information on finances and I think Christians in the western world will have a hard time with that, because the Bible itself is rather extreme when it comes to its teachings on money.

I also remember that Alcorn rabbit-trailed a lot and that the book could have been extensively edited. It was tedious reading at times.

A great little book that manages to pack a ton of information into only about 150 pages!

The author explains and defends the pro-life position as it applies to abortion and birth-control. The main portion of the book is written with scientific evidence to support this position; then in the appendix and last chapters, the author discusses a biblical defense and explains the Gospel of Jesus.

Just a couple of minor things I noticed that I didn't care for: the author at one point states that "increasing numbers of people hijack the term pro-life to argue against capital punishment or just war…" (p 61) but then later says "pro-life does not mean being pro-life only about babies." (P 80) I'm someone who is anti-capital punishment, and I would hesitate before claiming that the U.S., where I live, only ever engages in truly just wars. It seems to me that the author wants to have it both ways here… he wants to care about the lives of unborn children and their mothers, but not so much the lives of people whom he might view as "deserving" of death. I just can't agree with him on this. Life matters. Period.

Apart from that, and one instance of profanity (included in a quotation), this is an excellent book that I highly recommend to people on either side of the life/abortion debate!

Note: Included in the text are internet links to photos of in-utero babies. I wish they had simply been printed in the book. Turning them into "homework" makes it more likely that readers will not view them.

As politicians, citizens, and families continue the raging national debate on whether it's proper to end human life in the womb, resources like Randy Alcorn's Prolife Answers to Prochoice Arguments have proven invaluable. With over 75,000 copies in print, this revised and updated guide offers timely information and inspiration from a "sanctity of life" perspective. Real answers to real questions appear in logical and concise form. The final chapter- "Fifty Ways to Help Unborn Babies and Their Mothers"- is worth the price of this book alone!… (mais)
