Item Description...
In this book, Robert N. Wennberg looks at all the major arguments from the whole spectrum of positions on the abortion issue. He does so both earnestly and fairly, taking care to point out that most of the arguments follow soundly from their premises, and that most of the parties to the debate are altruistically motivated. Cutting through the sensationally prejudicial language often used in arguments about abortion, Wennberg clearly lays out what merit the various arguments have individually so readers can compare them sensibly. Writing out of the evangelical Protestant tradition, Wennberg nevertheless looks fairly and with an open mind at all of the arguments. The book will be valuable to anyone who wants a noncrusading presentation of this crucial issue.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Insightful and informing on the topic  Nov 10, 2001
I have read other books on the subject, but none so objective and insightful as this one. I was captivated by the engrossing writing style of Mr. Wennberg and was re-educated on the key points surrounding the abortion issue. This is a must buy for any thinking person interested in the ethical debate on abortion.
Life out of Balance: Wennberg combines Christianity & Choice  Sep 26, 2001
I discovered Life In The Balance by Robert Wennberg in 1989. I was shocked by Wennberg's conclusions concerning abortion, including: 1) "...the woman has the right to decide which burdens she will or will not bear (p.173); 2) "...we ought not to seek to criminalize abortion..."(p.175); and, 3) the woman has the "right to make the central decision" (i.e., to have an abortion or not to have one)(p.175).

This is a Christian "pro-choice" book, and, coming from an Evangelical Christian background, the book is the only one of its kind. It terribly misses the mark in terms of Biblical exegesis, namely because there isn't any.

Throughout the book, Wennberg downplays the status of the fetus and creates sympathy for the pregnant young lady. He denies that a fetus possesses personhood at any stage, and even suggests that infants lack personhood as well (p.48-49). Thus he sets the stage for infanticide.

Wennberg's ambivalence about unborn and born children is chilling, because the Bible - by contrast - portrays God as being intimately related to the unborn: "Your hands shaped me and made me... Did you not clothe me with skin and flesh and knit me together with bones and sinews? You gave me life and showed me kindness and in your providence watched over my spirit." (Job 10:8-12). And many other similar passages from the Bible, Wennberg ignores.

I actually wrote a book, no longer available for purchase, which is a response to Life In The Balance. If you search for my name at OCLC you can find it at a number of libraries. Otherwise, there is an online version as well. I go into much greater detail in my book than space affords here.

Wennberg flies in the face of the 99.9 percent of Evangelical Christendom which is pro-life.
