In this masterful and innovative book Glen Stassen and David Gushee join profound ethical reflections with faith in Jesus Christ, a life of discipleship, and the hope of the present and coming kingdom of God. The result is a fresh, challenging and comprehensive treatment of Christian ethics centered on the life and teaching of Jesus Christ. Drawing on detailed studies of the Sermon on the Mount, Stassen and Gushee shed light on the whole of biblical ethical teaching as it relates to a wide range of issues, including peacemaking, just war, nonviolence, sexuality and gender roles, marriage and divorce, race, economics, care of creation, prayer, and politics. Their work yields neither an impossible idealism, nor an abstract ethical system, nor a generic religious legalism. Rather Stassen and Gushee set forth a holistic ethic that motivates us and provides us with a practical basis for living under the lordship of Jesus Christ.
