Recommends it for: only those who are interested in debates on abortion
Most of this book was just an utter bore to me and I was even a theology major in college, so you'd think I'd like it. The only redeeming part of this book, which definitely is worth reading, is the chapter dedicated to Abortion. The author offers some very interesting points on both sides of the debate. If you want to read this chapter, I'll lend you the book, or look for it in the library (not worth spending the money for it).
