 Innocent Blood 
is a powerful indictment of those responsible for the abortion holocaust and thosewho have not joined in attempts to stop it. The author presents many biblical passages thatshould constrain our consciences and our actions. There are areas of theology about whichsincere Christians can disagree, but this is not one of them. The Scriptures are as clear as they
can be that God’s people have the responsibility to stop the shedding of innocent blood.

Lest Innocent Blood be Shed 
―Therefore I command you… lest innocent blood be shed in your land and the guilt of  bloodshed be upon you.‖
 
 — 
Deuteronomy 19:7-10]
―Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point.‖
 
 — 
C. S. Lewis
i
 This book takes its cue from Deuteronomy 19:7-10.Therefore I command you, You shall set apart three cities. And if the Lord your Godenlarges your territory, as he has sworn to your fathers, and gives you all the land that he
 promised to give to your fathers…then you shall
add three other cities to these three, lestinnocent blood be shed in your land that the Lord your God is giving you for aninheritance, and so the guilt of bloodshed be upon you.Here, God commands his people to take extensive precautions and invest significanteffort, even to the point of establishing cities, in order to avoid three terrible results:1. The shedding of innocent blood2. Blood-guilt3. The judgments of the Lord implied in the term blood-guiltThe clear principle set forth in this passage is also developed throughout Scripture bynumerous commands and examples
 — 
God's people are called to prevent both the death of innocents and the blood-guilt that results. The purpose of this book is to explore, explain, andurge our obedience to this call.In what ways have God's people taken this principle to heart and lived it out? Where theyhave been successful, how did they find the courage to prevent the shedding of innocent blood?These are some of the key questions explored in the following chapters.
