What the Bible Says about Birth Control, Infertility, Reproductive Technology, and Adoption

By Wayne Grudem

... Show All

New from Bestselling Author Wayne Grudem

Advances in technology offer couples wanting to have children more options than ever before—fertility treatment methods; prefertilization genetic screening; and embryo adoption. With all of these options available, plus the blessing of adoption, it can be difficult for Christian couples to determine which to consider when the Bible doesn’t give explicit direction. Wayne Grudem applies biblical truth and ethical reasoning to help Christians navigate these questions as they seek to live out God’s word in an ever-changing society.

“As a physician and medical educator, I’ve seen patients and medical students struggle with the issues addressed in this book. Wayne Grudem’s work presents a perfect blend of ethical, moral, technical, and biblical approaches to these critical topics. It will provide understandable guidance for health-care professionals as well as the general public.”
Jacqueline Chadwick, MD, family physician; medical educator

“Psalm 119:105 reminds us that God’s word is a ‘lamp to my feet and a light to my path.’ In characteristic fashion, Wayne Grudem has thoroughly applied the word of God to many of the reproductive technologies available today. This book can be a lamp that brightens the path of many couples struggling with the physical and emotional pain of infertility. At the same time, it will illuminate an ethical pathway through the maze of reproductive-technological choices that health-care providers face every day as we counsel our patients.”
