Birth Control For Christians: Making Wise Choices by Jenell Williams Paris (Associate Professor of Anthropology, Bethel College, St. Paul, Minnesota) is a book of facts and choices, presented without judgmental overtones, written expressly to inform Christians of all denominations about the various means of birth control. A fertility awareness instructor with Fertility Awareness-Twin Cities, Paris expertly examines the pros and cons of behavioral methods, barrier methods, hormonal method, IUDs, and male and female sterilization -- however, abortion is not discussed extensively since Christian denominations generally oppose it. Birth Control For Christians: Making Wise Choices is a highly recommended resource on the subject of family planning and birth control technologies for all interested Christian couples.

Format: Paperback
As a newlywed, this book has been very helpful. A few months into our marriage, I began to question the form of birth control we had chosen. A friend suggested this book, and I am so happy she did. Paris explains in clear language so many things about birth control, ovulation, anatomy, and sex that I didn't know before. The questions at the end of each chapter sparked conversation between my husband and I about issues we had not discussed before. While Paris writes from a moral Christian standpoint, the book is written in a frank practical way, not overly spiritual. Paris raises moral questions, but allows the reader to come to his/her own conclusions. This book has helped us to come to a point of feeling confident and comfortable with our choice of birth control, and it has also informed us of other methods we may want to consider later in our marriage. I would highly reccommend this book to anyone who has questions about birth control, especially those who are newly married or preparing for marriage.

Format: Paperback
This book was invaluable, and I feel that it should be a gift to every engaged Christian Couple.

This books looks closely at the Biblical and moral issues of all the methods of birth control out there. You will walk away feeling informed and empowered by this book! Very well written and easy to read, but incredibly thorough, and well researched. Very solid theological explanations througout to help you make decisions that you can feel right before God about.

This book was a wonderful way to resolve many of the questions my fiance and I had about birth control. As a Protestant Christian, I felt that there was a lack of information on birth control--I had taken Natural Family Planning classes through a local Catholic parish, but was hoping to find some counsel that combined both the medical perspective and the moral/religious aspect in a way seperate from the specific teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. Paris' book was extremely helpful in my questions and concerns. I would highly recommend this book!

This is a short, clear book about various means of contraception. The ethical view is Christian, however it has information and ethical questions that can be useful to a person who has a different faith perspective as well.

Fertility in our current society is not generally approached as God's domain - while this book gives discussion to the currently available tools, it also acknowledges that God is the one who is ultimately in control.
