Product Description

Assuming that biblical principles should determine both how Christians behave, Stephen Mott in Biblical Ethics and Social Change synthesizes the fields of biblical exegesis and ethics in order to shows how Christians can help to bring about social betterment. His strategy is twofold; illustrate how both individual character and social order compliment each other and if, or how they are conducive to the myriad forms we use to effect social change including, politics, evangelism, the church as counter-community, direct social action, armed revolution, and civil disobedience. These approaches are grounded in Mott's belief that political authority has a major role to play in social change and juxtaposed with the biblical mandates to help the poor.

Editorial Reviews


"Mott's brilliant collection of biblical and social themes brings the Christian imperative of social responsibility alive for evangelicals."--Benjamin C. Leslie, North American Baptist Seminary


"A masterpiece of Christian social concern....Excellent balance and broad scope....Should become a leading text on Christian social ethics."--David O. Moberg, Marquette University


"Mott...is to be cheered for his efforts at synthesis of biblical studies and ethics. He has faced the risks of communicating across ever more forbidding disciplinary lines in an effort to retrieve wholeness in Christian ethics."--Journal of the American Academy of Religion


"Covers much important ground in a balanced way....Well written and lucidly presented."--The Thomist


"Appropriately and courageously challenges Christians to face the scriptural exhortation to be a lamp of justice in a dark world."--Religious Studies Review
