Product Description

From Library Journal In a frightening vision of the immediate future (and an anti-abortion parable originally published in 1981), Bayly introduces Jonathan and Grace Stanton, whose six-year-old son has mild hemophilia, a treatable condition. But the advent of gene testing some 20 years earlier prevents genetic abnormalities through U.S. government-sanctioned abortions. Conditions that manifest themselves after the birth of a child are a virtual death sentence; the child is taken to a body bank to be kept alive, for years if needed, until all usable parts have been harvested for others. There are no happy endings here, and Christians are willing participants in this brave new world. Highly emotional and barbarously realistic, given the potential of current medical advances, Bayly's future forces Christians to make a choice to follow the latest medical intervention blindly or open their eyes and fight for the moral choice. Essential for all Christian fiction collections. Copyright 2000 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Book Description What does it mean to live as a Christian under a government with laws contrary to God's laws? More relevant today than when it was first published 25 years ago. Imagine an America not too many years distant. An America where abortion is the rule for imperfect fetuses and euthanasia is mandatory at age 75. Jon and Grace Stanton's allefiance to God is about to be put to the ultimate test in this future society. As they struggle to protect two members of their family from the law of the land, they must rely on each other and their fatih as they never have before. This novel, first published in 1981, seems increasingly predictive in its description of a world where morality is dictated by technology rather than the Word of God.
