    First I will admit up front that for me this is one of those books I was going to agree with We often discuss here reading books from a point of view that is one opposed to our own I try to do that if for no other reason than to see what's actually thought and said in those booksYou can't disagree if you don't know what you're disagreeing withThat said I want to ask even beg that no matter what your default political or for that matter religious stance is you pick up this book and try to read it with an open mindThe book was published in 1979 I am not going to try and convince you to read it other than by saying it is one of the most prescient reads I've ever come across The book opens with a discussion of what is thinkable and what is unthinkable Things that were unthinkable over time can become thinkable The look at what was thinkable and then of what would become thinkable in the near future became thinkable in our recent past and our present are spot onThey are also frighteningor at least should beIf it wouldn't be misleading I'd put this book on my Horror shelf as it is true to life horrorMuch of what's said here are things I was already aware of so I'm sure others will be to However the laying out of them in a coherent order and their implications are something I wish people would think aboutI'm going to ask that you please approach this with an open mind If at the end you think the book is wrong or the writers are wrong at least then you'll have considered and thought about itI personally don't see how anyone can read this and come away unchanged

    Dr C Everett Koop 1916 2013 prior US Surgeon General and Francis A Schaeffer 1912 1984 US Jesus Following social commentator were prophetic about the comjng state of societal deterioration back in 1979They wrote“The thinkables of the eighties and nineties and certainly the 21st Century so far will certainly include things which most people today find unthinkable and immoral even unimaginable and too extreme to suggest Yet–since they do not have some overriding principle that takes them beyond relativistic thinking–when these become thinkable and acceptable in the eighties and nineties most people will not even remember that they were unthinkable in the seventies They will slide into each new thinkable without a jolt p3The slippery slide predicted by Dr Koop and Pastor Schaeffer has continued to tilt precipitously maybe inevitablyRead the book to find out what's yet to comeBlessings and enjoyGaryFPatton 2014 01 25 © gfp'42™

    Written in the late 1970's this book is authored by a medical professional and a Christian thinker both of whom are now deceased Their compelling point in this book is to show how the values of Western materialism and Eastern mysticism ultimately devalue human life and open the door to arbitrary redefinitions of personhood that permit abortion on demand infanticide and euthanasia In contrast the Christian faith rooted in Scriptures shows the value God has placed on human kind Beliefs have conseuences It brought to mind the recent statement of a prominent atheist who said a human fetus is less human than an adult pig

    I did a year of research in Hematology at CHOP when C Everett Koop was there I saw him there a couple of times but also at Tenth Presbyterian where we went to church And Francis Schaefer came to Tenth to speak one Sunday These were my 2 of my college heroes

  6. Adam Calvert Adam Calvert says:

    On one level this book is very easy to read in that Fancis Schaeffer is a brilliant communicator On another level this book is very hard to read in that it discusses the terrifying truth of how society in America has year after year continued to de humanize humanitySchaeffer and Koop write a depressing but important documentary on what happens when a society arbitrarily assigns humanness apart from the fact that all humans are created in the image of God Their work deals with abortion euthanasia the basis for human dignity the importance of history and understanding it and what our personal response as Christians needs to be regarding the devaluing of human life in American society The the last chapter is full of a variety of pro life organizations throughout the nation and contact information so the reader can get involvedWhile it was first published in 1979 and 1983 it is still relevant to Christians today and their need to speak out for those who cannot speak for themselves the unborn the infants the infirmed and the elderly As with Schaeffer's How Should We Then Live the movie with the same title that accompanies the book is well worth the watch and adds even to the impact of this important message

  7. Bendick Ong Bendick Ong says:

    Though written in 1979 the fact that it has 10 edition shows the relevance even today The 3 topics discussed abortion infanticide and euthanasia are much debated topics in ethics dealing with perhaps the most important issue life The 4th chapter points the problem to materialistic humanism and the 5th and 6th present the Christian solution Using simple words with impactful black and white photos the delivery is simple and the point is clear we should view life as God wants us to see it

    This was an excellent book It really clarified some things for me It reminded me of what I stand for and I what I stand against It inspired me to fight for life and justice to fight for the human race It encouraged me to look to the God of my Salvation YAHWEH the same God who led the children of Israel through the wilderness; the same God who raised my Savior Jesus Christ from the dead

  9. John John says:

    This book has the misfortune of being so prophetic and well read that it has almost become cliche It is absolutely foundational for the modern evangelical church in its opposition to abortion and euthanasia Still it is excellent in its critiue its philosophic arguments and its prophetic power
