Over one million unborn children are intentionally aborted every year in North America. Voiceless and helpless, their blood cries out. Will those of us who serve as pastors and preachers respond from our pulpits? Silence is not an option. We cannot keep quiet while thousands of our neighbors, made in the image of God, are being led to the slaughter every day. But neither should we condemn and vilify those who are complicit in their deaths. A truly pro-life pulpit ministry opposes the injustice of abortion with truth, courage and understanding. Tears mingled with hope, overflowing with grace. After all, the Christian faith is rooted in the good news of a Messiah who was once an embryo. Nine months before he was born, Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit, and for the next forty weeks he lived and grew in the womb of an unwed teenaged mother. He is at the heart of our preaching, and this book will show you how to confront the sin of abortion by proclaiming the God who became abortable in order to save sinners. --You don't often find the protesting prophet and the tender pastor blended in one person or one book, but that is what Stephen Tu is, and that is what he has written. Add to that combination the careful scholar and the result is the book before you. May God use it to open our eyes, soften our hearts, and arouse our wills.-- -Jeffrey Arthurs Professor of Preaching and Communication Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary Stephen Tu (DMin, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary) is Senior Pastor of Trinity Pacific Church in Vancouver, British Columbia.
