Product Description

This book serves as an introduction to the field of biblical ethics, a subcategory of the discipline of moral theology. It differs from moral philosophy in that biblical ethics is distinctively Christian, and it is more specific than Christian ethics proper because it specifically focuses upon the application of the moral law--as it is revealed in Scripture--to daily living.

Introduction to Biblical Ethics explains the nature, relevancy, coherency, and structure of the moral law as revealed throughout the Bible. In addition to covering the foundational elements of biblical ethics, major issues investigated in this volume include:
  • The different types of law in Scripture
  • The relationship between the law and the gospel
  • Issues related to conflicting moral absolutes
Additionally, after a discussion of ethical methodology, and using the Ten Commandments as a moral rubric, author David W. Jones explores the place of the moral law in the lives of believers. In the final chapters, the events surrounding the giving of the Decalogue are surveyed, and the application of each of the Ten Commandments to Christian living is explored.

Endorsements

I believe this will become the standard in the field of biblical ethics. It is clear, concise, and eminently readable. We have long needed a book like this, and now we have it.
-Daniel L. Akin

A well-informed, readable, and practical introduction to the study of Christian ethics. For every important ethical topic, Jones carefully documents and summarizes a number of different Christian views and then argues graciously and effectively for the position he favors. He constantly returns to Scripture as his ultimate standard and makes many practical applications to ordinary life. Readers will find this to be an excellent introduction to biblical ethics for many years to come.
-Wayne Grudem

It is my privilege to commend to you this volume. May it enjoy the success it deserves, for there are too few who have had the courage to use the Scriptures in confronting such hard ethical questions in our times.
-Walter C. Kaiser

Jones is a distinctive evangelical scholar, anointed with biblical wisdom and gospel passion. This book will teach, rebuke, encourage, and provoke conversations that will linger long after the last page is turned.
-Russell D. Moore
