Dr. Dumitru Macaila

Appropriately subtitled The Eastern Orthodox Christian Perspective on Abortion. The work approaches its tragic subject systematically, comprehensively and comprehendably, beginning with "Pre-Christian Perspectives", a careful examination of ancient Biblical and patristric teaching, progressing to historic Roman Catholic and Protestant attitudes (sometimes surprising), and concluding with the contemporary situation, including an excellent chapter on "The Hard Cases". Far from being a "political" issue, as so many would like to term it, this is a moral issue of the first importance. If we turn aside from facing it squarely... and our own complicity in a culture of death and destruction which dares to term it a "right"... we may be found guilty at the Judgement of having denied Christ Himself. An extensive bibliography enhances the value of the book. Perfect-Bound
