Product Description

"This volume will deal mostly with ethics, but also with a number of other subjects, grouped around the general title The Doctrine of the Christian Life. The ethics course I taught at Westminster Seminary had that title, but it was James Hurley, as I recall, who suggested to me that the Christian life was much more than ethics. The Christian life is not only a matter of following rules of morality, but a dynamic experience: living in the fallen world, in fellowship with the living God. So in this book I will discuss not only ethics (the normative perspective), but also the culture in which we live (the situational perspective) and the resources of redemption on which we draw daily (the existential perspective)." -from the author's preface

Publisher's Description

The third volume of Frame's Theology of Lordship series, this book focuses on biblical ethics. In an age of ethical relativism and suspicion of authority, how can we know what is good, virtuous, or just? Frame surveys non-Christian ethical traditions before setting forth a solidly Christian ethical method. By clarifying biblical norms, life situations, and personal dimensions, he presents a model for decision making that honors God in all aspects of life. Discussions range from natural law and conflict of duties to detailed explorations of the Ten Commandments in connection with questions surrounding worship, the Sabbath, church and state, respect for life and truth, sexuality, and the relation of Christ to culture.

Endorsements

“John Frame’s magnificent work on the Christian life fully endorses the authority of Scripture and practically addresses the need to consider the situations and people involved in ethical decisions.” —Richard L. Pratt Jr., President of Third Millennium Ministries

“I took John Frame’s class on Christian ethics 30 years ago. His wisdom then fundamentally shaped my understanding. It is such a pleasure now to revisit, in print, the fruits of his continued thinking about how we are to live. Frame shows forth God’s commandments as broad and deep, as sweetly adaptable to the varieties of human experience. He shows forth how the person, promises, and actions of our redeemer God are always intrinsic to our wisdom, our faith, and our love. He sets forth a vision for the Christian life that, in fact, in the details, glorifies the God of glory.” —David Powlison, CCEF

    This is the first book I've read from John Frame, which I picked up at the local Southern Baptist seminary bookstore (Frame's theology is Reformed). I am only 142 pages into it (it is 1000 pages long), but I am VERY impressed with what I have read thus far. Frame builds his ethical system around a correct response to God's lordship attributes of Control, Authority, and Covenant Presence. His approach is holistic and very biblical.
