Abstract

Can a book about prudence survive in contemporary publication culture? This one will most definitely survive — and may indeed thrive if readers can handle constructive criticism that leads to greater good.

Lamenting the loss of public virtue and the sad reality that political action and involvement has grown frustrating for the evangelical Christian community, Clarke Forsythe gently, empathetically, and thoughtfully reminds the prolife public that we are no more virtuous than our progressive proabortion counterparts when it comes to judicial activism, clarifying the need for a wiser solution.

Keywords: prolife, abortion, virtue, prudence, jurisprudence, prochoice

JEL Classification: K1, K10
