Corporate scandals, cloning, and debates about war are recent reminders of the importance of ethics. Whether the topic is civil liberties, business ethics, medical technologies, or sexuality, we all have our opinions. The author guides you through foundational issues such as what basis is behind ethical judgments and what role scripture, law, love, or conscience plays. These issues and more are discussed in this thoughtful, balanced, and informed discussion rooted in a Reformed confessional worldview.
Addresses foundational issues in general and Christian ethics by using Scripture in a balanced, informed, and careful way and by integrating classic Reformed creeds into the discussion.

I welcome this translation and am very grateful it is being made available in our country. As any casual observer of our culture can see, its about time Responsible Conduct got here.
A substantial work in Reformed Ethics; I am glad that it is now being made available to English readers.
