The Sanctity of Human Life

David P. Gushee

In this essay from Q Ideas, David P. Gushee writes an exegetical exposition of the oft politically charged and utilized idea of the “sanctity of life,” arguing that it “is not simply a slogan, but an extraordinarily rich and important Christian moral conviction that has far wider implications than most of us realize.” Gushee draws out the biblical basis from both the Old and New Testaments as to why Christians should believe in the sanctity of life. He then looks at the different implications that conviction has when approaching political and social issues in the world today.
