In the past decade many Christians have embraced the "What Would Jesus Do?" campaign, which encourages people to base their decisions and actions on this question. In Remembering Jesus--the book that promises to be his magnum opus--Allen Verhey takes a serious look at what Jesus really said and did and applies it to contemporary Christian ethics. Verhey asserts that following Jesus requires remembering him, and thgis entails reading and understanding Scripture, where the memory of Jesus is found. By remembering Jesus, this book contributes to the efforts of Christians to discern the shape and style of life "worthy of the gospel." More specifically, it displays the implications of Christian integrity for medical, sexual, economic, and political ethics, seeking to understand what Jesus would really have to say about these issues today. While ideally suited as a text for courses in Christian ethics, this book will also become a valued resource for pastors and general readers looking for clear, biblically based instruction on moral living in the modern world.
