The Fifth Commandment: Moral Issues of Life and Death
- Unit Price
Matters of life and death are very important concerns. Frequently it is said that the health of a society is understood by the way it treats the vulnerable: the elderly, children, the ill or the unborn. This booklet explores the Christian approach to the Fifth Commandment and what it means for us to believe that God alone is the author of life and that it is not permissible to take a human life. Instead of reducing 'Thou shall not kill' to convenient bromides, we learn what it means to be Christian and to have this commandment as a fundamental principle of Christian living.
