Corporate scandals are only the latest reminder of the importance of ethics. Responsible Conduct offers the first English translation of a standard, introductory-level volume on this subject that has served Christians in the Netherlands for over twenty-five years. "Every system of ethical reflection lies embedded within a worldview, " writes Douma. "I owe my own worldview to the light shining from the Bible. 'Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path, ' I confess with Psalm 119:105. Therefore, ethics is for me Christian ethics, reflection upon moral conduct in light of the perspective offered us in Holy Scripture."
