Made in His Image by Dr Philip Mullan

BOOK OF THE MONTH // July

13 You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. 14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvellous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well. 15 My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skilfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. 16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them. 17 How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! 18 If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand.     - Psalm 139:13-18

 

Now more than ever it’s so important to know what we believe, why we believe it, and how to defend our beliefs. With (social) media constantly portraying points of view that aren’t necessarily Biblical, as Christians, we need to take get back into using the Bible as our moral compass.

The abortion debate often provokes strong reactions on both sides of the argument. Past simply exploring the hard facts of abortion, we need to go back to the beginning and address what the Bible teaches us about what it means to be human. Information needs to be gleaned from both the biblical and scientific perspectives and presented conscientiously.

In this short book, Made In His Image - The Christian and Abortion, that is exactly what Dr Philip Mullan does – he addresses these issues in a holistic and Bible-based manner, reminding us of the high value that God places on every individual, including the unborn child, the teenage mum, and those who have had abortions.

It’s not just questions such as ‘when does human life begin?’ that are explored, but also encouragement and advice on how to genuinely support those suffering from the real heartache, distress and fear that many women and couples face.

 

Dr Philip Mullan is a GP who works in Northern Ireland. Originally from Newtownbreda, Belfast, he now lives in Dungannon with his wife Esther and their three children. He enjoys helping young people understand what the Bible teaches and how it is relevant to everyday life.

"Some may say that abortion is a woman's issue, and that, as a man, I should not speak about it. But, as a Christian, I believe God has spoken about it, and His voice must be heard. We must be willing to submit to His truth, knowing that He is good, and His ways are best.”
