3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Labarum VINE VOICE on January 17, 2009
Format: Paperback
The recent pronouncements of such political figures as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senator (now Vice-President-Elect) Joseph Biden on theological matters concerning abortion have focused attention on the historic claims of the Church concerning whether the "termination of a pregnancy" is inherently sinful. One might wonder why those of the political elite would care about theological history but Pelosi and Biden, both Catholic, were at pains to defend themselves against charges of being "bad Catholics" in an election year. In view of suggestions by many Catholic bishops that supporting abortion rights was a communion-breaking offense, both attempted to present the history of Catholicism as much more nuanced on the issue.

Of course, no one has ever confused either with an expert on Church history. Indeed, their claims are totally absurd. But it is one thing to state their absurdity and another to demonstrate it. Dennis DiMauro has ably done the latter in A Love for Life as he examines the history of the Church regarding its view on the abortion issue. By the end of the book, he has convincingly demolished the claims of those whose wishful thinking would allow them to promote abortion as an issue where the Church has been historically divided.

Beginning with the most ancient sources, DiMauro mines both Scripture and Christian tradition to bring together all the elements of a view on life that challenged the "culture of death" existing in the pagan Roman Empire and triumphed over it.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Midwest Book Review on October 11, 2008
Format: Paperback
The social and political controversy over abortion is not an issue that is entirely modern. Expertly researched and deftly written by Dennis DiMauro, "A Love for Life" is an informed and informative historical survey on the subject of abortion, focusing on the Judeo/Christian condemnation of the practice down through the centuries. Adamant in its pro-life message, "A Love for Life" is highly recommended reading for the Christian community who are engaged in contemporary debate of a sensitive and culturally polarized issue.

A History of the Christian Church's Witness against Abortion

Reviewed by Laura Echevarria

While reading Dennis DiMauro's book, A Love for Life, I kept thinking, "I wish I had this the years I was director of Media Relations for National Right to Life."
Mr. DiMauro's book about Christianity and abortion would have been of great use to my department. We would often receive calls from individuals or reporters interested in the views of abortion by religious denominations. While we did have denominational statements available through National Right to Life or our friends at the National Pro-Life Religious Council, Mr. DiMauro's book is brilliant in its simplicity and would have been of great help.

Dennis DiMauro knows the issue of abortion and the positions of various denominations well. He is the secretary of the National Pro-Life Religious Council and president of Northern Virginia Lutherans for Life. He is also a doctoral student in church history at the Catholic University of America. He knows and understands the history and views of the various denominations on the abortion issue and, through his book, does a great service for anyone interested in abortion and religion.

Experts in the field sing the praises of A Love for Life. No higher source of praise for a book of this nature is Michael J. Gorman, author of the brilliant examination of Abortion and the Early Church.

"In this brief but comprehensive and well-researched book, Dennis DiMauro traces the history of the Christian church's pro-life position, born from its Scriptures and theologically consistent until the latter part of the twentieth century," Dr. Gorman writes.
