40 Days for Life book

40 Days for Life which began in 2004 in Texas has grown in England in recent years and is now a regular part of pro-life witness. David Bereit and Shawn Carney, together with Cindy Lambert, have collected 40 short stories from life to give encouragement and inspiration to pro-lifers and, let us hope, to those who are undecided.

The stories show how God has transformed lives. Mothers have changed their minds about abortion, those praying have deepened in their spiritual lives, and even abortion workers have been converted. I was glad to see the chapter "From boys to men" focussing especially on the responsibility of young fathers.
