Reviews - What do customers think about Six Billion and More: Human Population Regulation & Christian Ethics?
Excellent ethical analysis and theological reflection Feb 16, 2009
In this work, Bratton provides the Christian community with a stark and realistic picture of the current population crisis facing all nations of the world. She methodically examines biblical foundations for both old and new approaches to a Christian ethic of population control. Although Bratton places great responsibility on the developed nations, she also recognizes the importance of empowering the voice of the developing nations and the women in these nations. In her final analysis, Bratton's Completely Pro-life Model impressively combines Christian ideas of the sanctity of life with an ecological basis and a holistic examination of wellbeing, not just life. I greatly appreciated the candor and pragmatism of her work.
