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, presenting a method for ethical decision-making, an analysis of biblical ethical teaching focusing on the Ten Commandments, and a discussion of the relation of Christ to human culture.

Author Bio

John M. Frame (A.B., Princeton University; B.D., Westminster Theological Seminary; M.A. and M.Phil., Yale University; D.D., Belhaven College) is the J. D. Trimble Professor of Systematic Theology and Philosophy at Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando and the author of many books, including the four-volume Theology of Lordship series.

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

Editorial Reviews

Frame sets forth God’s commandments as broad and deep, as sweetly adaptable to the varieties of human experience. He shows how the person, promises, and actions of our redeemer God are always intrinsic to our wisdom, faith, and love. He sets forth a vision for te Christian Life that, in fact, glorifies God of Glory.
This wide-ranging work on ethics reflects all the characteristics we have come to expect from John Frame: passion for clarity and lucid explanations; boldness in addressing relevant and controversial topics; refusal to capitulate to ideologies, whether Left or Right; commitment to the highest standards of scholarship; and, most importantly, zealous fidelity to Scripture as the infallible source of ethical norms. Frame's theological program, nourished in an irenic spirit, is a treasure to the Church of Jesus Christ.
Without a doubt John Frame is one of the greatest teachers of ethics in the world. His 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. I strongly recommend this book as a text for serious students of ethics and for every layperson who wants to know how to make decisions pleasing to God.
This book is a landmark in its field because of its soundness and thoroughness. It is noteworthy for its careful attention to the biblical basis for ethical instruction, its use of the Bible in its details, its attention to the similarities and differences in comparison with non-Christian ethical systems, its discussion of a wide range of issues, and its sensitivity to the multidimensional demands of the Christian life. The book uses effectively a triad of perspectives already known from Frame's earlier writings, namely the normative, situational, and personal/existential perspectives. Thus it gives attention to detailed biblical instruction (normative perspective), the cultural and individual situation for Christian obedience (situational perspective), and the pertinence of attitudes, motives, and desires of the heart (personal/existential perspective).

    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.
