Leland House Press to Publish ‘Women on Life’ to Address Moral and Ethical Questions

December 1, 2015

WASHINGTON, D.C, Dec. 1, 2015The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Conventions Leland House Press, an initiative of the ERLC, will release Women on Life: A Call to Love the Unborn, Unloved, & Neglected, next month. This book will feature essays by female pro-life leaders.

Each chapter helps Christians apply a biblical, pro-life ethic to real-life situations.

The book will be published in mid-January and will be available for purchase through most major online retailers in print and eBook formats.

The 16 contributors to Women on Life include:

– Trillia Newbell, Editor of Women on Life and Director for Community Outreach, ERLC

– Betsy Childs Howard, Editor, The Gospel Coalition

– Jackie Hill-Perry, Poet, Artist with Humble Beast Records

– Kelly Rosati, Vice President of Community Outreach, Focus on the Family

It’s not enough to be vocally pro-life, said Newbell. To be pro-life is to act out of love for every single person who carries incredible worth. This is what Women on Life is all about. It isn’t just a book about why we are pro-life, but rather how we can practically love and serve in a variety of difficult real-life circumstances.

Russell Moore, president of the ERLC also commented on the book.

It is crucial in our advocacy for the unborn that we speak directly to the consciences of women with a pro-life, whole-life message. The voices gathered together in Women For Life are doing just that. Im excited to see what this book will accomplish for the cause of life and human dignity in our churches and communities.

Leland House Press exists to equip the local church about moral and ethical issues through the publication of books and ebooks.
