Fearfully and Wonderfully Made: Ethics and the Beginnings of Human Life by Megan Best (Matthias Media. 9781921896613. $29.99)
This is now the ‘must read’ book in the field… – D.A. Carson
What sort of contraception, if any, should I use? When does human life begin—at fertilisation or at some point after that? What are the arguments for and against abortion? Is it OK to use genetic screening and other pre-natal tests to check for abnormalities in my unborn baby? Should Christians use IVF and other assisted reproductive technologies? What is the current state of embryonic stem cell research?
These are just some of the many complex and emotion-laden questions we face in the rapidly changing field of reproductive medicine, and most Christians do so with two very significant handicaps:
- We don’t have accurate up-to-date information about the medical and technological issues involved
- We have not thought through a sound, biblical framework for making ethical decisions in this area
Dr. Megan Best provides what is lacking in both of these vital areas. Built on extensive historical, biblical and medical research, Fearfully and Wonderfully Made is the comprehensive, accurate, biblically-based ethical handbook that Christians have been waiting for.
The Post-Church Christian: Dealing with the Generational Baggage of Our Faith by J. Paul Nyquist and Carson Nyquist (Moody Publishers. 9780802406408. $13.99)
You’ve heard the stats by now: the Millennial generation is leaving the church.
Walking away in disillusionment and frustration, they are looking for new communities to welcome them. As they seek to follow Jesus, they are leaving the churches they grew up in to find a new way.
In an attempt to exemplify the story of Millennials and seek answers for the future, Paul Nyquist, President of Moody Bible Institute, has teamed up with his son, Carson Nyquist, to share an honest and thoughtful conversation on this topic. As father and son they’ve experienced this generational disconnect, both personally and in the church.
