Item description for Winterflight - 25th Anniversary Edition (Joseph Bayly Series) by Joseph Bayly...

Overview
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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Winterflight - 25th Anniversary Edition (Joseph Bayly Series)?

Hard to believe this was written in 1981.  Jun 16, 2005
I wouldn't really say this is a great work of fiction nor was it meant to be. I believe that the story is an allegory for the direction that the author saw the country turning.

He envisioned an America where everyone has universal healthcare and no one suffers from the ravages of Tay Sachs, hemophilia, or sickle cell anemia but where those who have these conditions and other congenital deformities are aborted or live Brain Dead in Body Banks ready to 'donate' a body part to those in need.

No one worries about having to live on social security into old age as once you turn 75, the government has you report to a euthanasia center(shades of Edgar G. Robinson in "Soylent Green").

The future he paints is not bright and the ending of the story is not pleasant, but with recent cases in the news and the ascendancy of the culture of abortion and euthanasia the late author may have painted a picture of where we are headed as a society
 
Open Your Eyes!  Jan 30, 2005
Through the course of the narrative many questions are raised, many situations are set up, but are left open. Rather than to think this was an error on the part on of the author, this was instead asking a bold "What if..?" these type of events were allowed to unfold without so much of a protest in everyday real life. After all, some practices within todays society go on as if fully accepted without quarrel while others seek the same acceptance, and thus, do the same disrespect to the sanctity of human life the author makes references too.

While I was disturbed by the ending, I fully understand where the grandfather felt there was no other recourse for him or for his grandson. But, isn't that the point?

Where was the Christian witnesses when and where it was needed? Where were his Christian brothers and sisters? All cosy until they happen to be affected by "the termination notices"?

For a society to view all those 75 yrs and older as disposable and all children born with ~any~ type of physical abnormality or condition as defective should that be considered just as, if even not ~more so~ disturbing?

This is a very timely book with a very timely message for all those who cherish the sanctity of human life.
 
Christians should act now  May 19, 2000
The book is a disturbing look at what America might be in the future. 20 years after this book was originally written, I live in a state with legal abortion and legal physician-assisted suicide. An America closer to the one written about in the book than the one in which the author lived. I agree with another review that calls the book a wake up call. The most disturbing part of the book is the failure of the characters in the story to have acted earlier. They were content to live in an America that decided who lived and who didn't untill the ones who were told to die were in their own family. The father in the story, Jon, says that he "is no Dietrich Bonhoeffer." Indeed! Bonhoeffer opposed Hitler's policies of death from the beginning and resisted them untill his execution. Joseph Bayly never lets us forget in the book the parallels he draws between this futuristic America and Nazi Germany. As a medical student and scientist, I found the book to be an important reminder of the implications to today's research and medical practices.

A good wake up call for today's slippery-slope culture.  Jun 28, 1999
Reading this book ten years ago left me thinking that the mass euthanasia of our elderly and genetically impure could never happen. Now in the days of Dr. Kevorkian, and the increasing amount of governmental controls over our society, the book's content could become more of a reality than we would have expected. If you want to peek at future possibilities based on today's moral choices, this book will certainly make you think twice about the things our culture deems to be ethical now. Just what are we paving the way for??? This book gives a plausible answer.
