Product Description

The situational ethics made popular in the 1960s teach that "all we need is love." Loving is how we should be, but it does not tell us what to do. A biblical ethic can provide guidance and begins with the light of Scripture. But how applicable is the Bible's moral standard to the complex issues we face today, such as stem cell research, euthanasia, racism, gambling, and environmental care? And how does a person use Scripture in making or evaluating ethical decisions?

Trusted Bible scholar and teacher Walter Kaiser answers these questions by connecting eighteen key teaching Scriptures to eighteen tough ethical issues, including, for example, poverty with Isaiah 58:1-12, genetic engineering with Genesis 1:26-39 and 2:15-25, substance abuse with Proverbs 23:29-35, cohabitation with 1 Thessalonians 4:1-8, and war with Deuteronomy 20:1-20 and Romans 13:1-7. Through authoritative teaching from Scripture, suggested expositional outlines, and insights from years of teaching this material at Gordon-Conwell and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Kaiser demonstrates how to connect Scripture to ethical issues and train congregations to think biblically about ethics. The result is a vital text for teaching pastors, a stimulating resource and guide for preaching, and a foundation for developing Bible studies.

    This book presents a series of moral problems in the world today. It discusses each in a frank and totally biblical manner. It is an excellent place to begin teaching and a good source for discussion. I use it in our discipleship program when we discuss ethics and morality.

    The title caught my attention immediately. Trust it does also make reference to Micah 6:8. Heard of a professor at an Ivy League School who had this (Micah 6:8) as a motto and posted in his classroom.
