Product Description

Brandon Scott gives us an insightful history of abortion, how it was understood, and how this issue is shaping Christianity today. Scott unfurls the religious understanding of abortion beginning with Aristotle whose world view of the natural order was informed by a hierarchical and “patriarchal logic.” Scott asks three important questions: Why is it this way? How do things fit together? What is hidden? His exploration of these questions becomes the content of this important and stunning book. (The Rev. Canon Marianne Borg)
