Praise for the Print Edition

Hopefully Holy Abortion? A Theological Critique of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice will be a wake-up call for all who have let the stridency about this issue lull them into indifference. Christians simply cannot give up our commitments to the care of unborn life. This book makes radically clear why that is the case.

Stanley Hauerwas, Gilbert T. Rowe Professor of Theological Ethics, Duke Divinity School

This book will be invaluable not only to current church leaders, but also to future generations of scholars, who will struggle to understand how the church of Jesus Christ could have descended into this bizarre embrace of death as an emblem of freedom.

Frederica Mathewes-Green, author, At the Corner of East and Now: A Modern Life in Ancient Christian Orthodoxy
