Asking the hard questions
4 stars By Thumbnail, May 19 2011
The only way to radically improve the situation of children in our culture is to confront the hard issues, expose ourselves to what is really happening and stand up for what we know is right. This book is a call to action for all Christian believers, imploring us to pay attention and to put the gospel into action for the sake of our young. 

Churches can no longer hide away from social evils and must be at the forefront of protecting children and families in the face of neglect, abuse, exposure to the excesses of our society and institutionalised murder in the name of family planning. 

Theologically rich and well-researched, this is a must-read book for Christians who care about children, childhood and the future of our families.
