Abortion and euthanasia are hot-button issues in our world today, accompied by many differing views, deeply held convictions, and personal experiences related to privacy, sexual behavior, personal desires and responsibility, pregnancy, and children-but deeper than all these is the nature of human life itself. In this timely book, adapted from his larger work Christian Ethics, Wayne Grudem argues that human life is rooted in God's image, and it is therefore morally wrong to put an innocent human to death, whether at the beginning or end of life. He offers a biblical guide to these topics, defining his terms clearly, exploring science and politics, and weighing opposing arguments-answering questions about the protection of an unborn child, abortion in the case of rape or danger to the mother's life, and when to stop medical treatment at the end of someone's life. This short book will help all who seek to understand what the Bible teaches about these important issues that deal with human life.
