Book Makes Good Points, But....
Ms. Scott makes many good points about how many types of birth control stop implantation of fertilized eggs, how Christians are commanded to be fruitful, how children are blessings and should be welcomed into families. However, she also makes false statements--she claims that the birth control pill almost always stops implantation of a fertilized egg. In reality, different studies have estimated that implantation may be stopped anywhere from 3%-33% of the time. An author loses credibility when (s)he throws out 'facts' without proper documentation. Ms. Scott relegates NFP to a small section at the end, with wishy-washy comments that it might be okay for people who haven't fully trusted God. This doesn't jive with the central thesis of her book that birth control is always a sin. While I think she makes good points that Christians should be having more children, I disagree with her that anything in the Bible says it's a sin if a couple seeks to avoid having children. She also didn't adress the fact that the female body gives so many clear-cut signs of ovulation--did God really make ovulation so easy for a woman to pin-point, if he did not intend for a couple to use this knowledge in making wise decisions in regards to having children? This book was a good read with many beneficial points, but I don't think the author proved her central thesis. ( )
