Editorial Reviews

“I am delighted that John J. Davis’s Evangelical Ethics is appearing again in a new edition. I have used the text in my classes for years. I admire its faithfulness to Scripture and Reformed theology and its power to stimulate good dis- cussion. The new chapters on the environment and genetics continue the same high standard. I recommend the book highly.”
I became an ordained pastor in 1985, the year Evangelical Ethics was first published. Serving a young and growing congregation serious about studying ethics, this book became my primary resource. Six years later Dr. Davis and I served the same church, and my appreciation for his work only grew as I came to trust and value his personal integrity and pastoral wisdom. His comprehensive learning, accessible language, and unswerving commitment to the authority of scripture is evident on every page. This fourth edition includes a chapter on slavery, race, and racism, and will prove helpful to churches committed to healing America’s long-standing racial divisions. Every thoughtful Christian will want to keep this book close at hand.

    As a Christian, Ive always liked John Frames definition of theology the application of the whole Bible to the whole of human life. A case in point, this book by John Jefferson Davis is one of those that seeks to apply the word of God to all areas of our life.

    Within this book, Davis tackles 13 contemporary topics. Some of the topics includes the usual like reproductive technologies, divorce and remarriages, abortions, etc As a pastor these will be topics that one day you need to discuss or wrestle with with your congregation.

    Unlike most books, Davis does not give readers a direct answer to their questions. Rather, David wants the readers to examine the questions historically, biblical and applicationally. He takes readers through the historical trends of each topics, then he examines the relevant pages of the bible and makes his observations and interpretation clear to his readers. Next, he comes to the topic at hand and gives his thoughts on it. Throughout the book, I felt that Davis was able to present the topics and his thoughts clearly, but not impose his conclusions onto the readers. I was clearly given the opportunity to think through the topic myself and come to a conclusion based on what I thought was biblical.

    Pastors, especially those living in the united states will benefit most from this book since this was written from that perspective, and primarily for christians living in those settings. However, this book can still be useful for pastors living elsewhere as they provide clear starting points for pastors who are beginning to think about these issues.
