Save One: The Men's Study SaveOne: The Men's Study
SaveOne: The Men’s Study is for men seeking deliverance from the pain and guilt of an abortion experience. This is a guide as well as a workbook, researched and written by a woman who herself had an abortion when she was a teenager. For seven years, author Sheila Harper carried with her the shame and humiliation of her abortion, only to find deliverance through Gods abundant Grace.

This book is a revealing look at post-abortion pain and guilt. It will help you pinpoint the debilitating issues of forgiveness, anger, and wrong thoughts. SaveOne will guide you toward Gods Grace and His renewal of your mind. Step by step, this study guide shows you how to rely on your Creator for the courage to deal with the past, while answering questions such as:

Is there life after an abortion?
Can I really overcome my guilt and be set free?
Does God really care about me?

Dearest AngelDearest Angel
William Zimmerman in his reflective book. Dearest Angel has shared the depth of his pain resulting from the abortion of his child. As someone who has walked with men who have lost their children in this way, he has done a great service to those who have walked where he has walked and those trying to understand the pain of a father who lost his child to abortion! There are very few books that address this politically incorrect topic! I highly recommend this book.
