Greg Koukl, of Stand to Reason, interviews Scott Klusendorf on his new book The Case for Life: Equipping Christians to Engage the Culture. A bit about the author:
Scott Klusendorf is the president of Life Training Institute, where he trains pro-life advocates to persuasively defend their views. A passionate and engaging platform speaker, Scott’s pro-life presentations have been featured by Focus on the Family, Truths That Transform, and American Family Radio. Scott is a graduate of UCLA and the author of Pro-Life 101: A Step-by-Step Guide to Making Your Case Persuasively.
The book is clear and accessible — the sort of book that a busy layperson can read, understand, and apply in everyday conversations on questions like: What is an unborn baby? Isn’t abortion a “private matter”? What if the mother cannot afford to have a child? Klusendorf also helpfully sets the pro-life view within the larger framework of a Christian worldview.
Read the Introduction and Chapter 1.
“The Case for Life is a veritable feast of helpful information about pro-life issues, the finest resource about these matters I have seen. It is accessible to the layperson, and it lays out a strategy for impacting the world for a culture of life.”
– J. P. Moreland, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Biola University; author of Kingdom Triangle
“Scott Klusendorf has produced a marvelous resource that will equip pro-lifers to communicate more creatively and effectively as they engage our culture. The Case for Life is well-researched, well-written, logical, and clear, containing many pithy and memorable statements. Those already pro-life will be equipped; those on the fence will likely be persuaded. Readers looking to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves will find much here to say. I highly recommend this book.”
– Randy Alcorn, best-selling author
“Scott Klusendorf takes the insights and methods for defending the right to life he so effectively communicates in his teaching presentations into a book that provides a clear and cogent biblical rationale for the sanctity and dignity of life, born or unborn. This is a great tool for the layman who knows he or she is pro-life, but doesn’t understand the presuppositions on which his or her beliefs are based or who doesn’t feel equipped to defend or discuss the issue with others.”
– Chuck Colson, founder, Prison Fellowship
