Evangelical Ethics is filled with godly guidance. Christians are being called upon to decide and justify their positions on many issues that affect our world. They need to determine the extent that their moral convictions should be reflected in society. Some of these situations involve life and death, as in the cases of abortion and euthanasia. Others, like divorce and civil disobedience, are legal questions with spiritual implications.
While this textbook-style treatise may seem aimed at scholars and students, this reviewer urges all Christians to carefully read through the material presented. It’s clear from the author’s direct style of writing that he sincerely desires his readers to understand and to act upon the information provided. The extensive bibliography is a testimony to the hours of research gone into the writing of this book, yet these facts are carefully and concisely arranged for the reader to quickly assimilate them.
In each chapter, the author tackles an issue with a blending of Scripture, statistics, and sound logical thinking. Often, there is a unique dovetailing of historical facts and contemporary arguments. Additionally, medical, legal, and psychological aspects are explored. With this wealth of information, readers will be able to confidently develop and defend their positions on these important issues. Evangelical Ethics is essential reading for today’s Christian. -- Joyce Handzo, Christian Book Previews.com
