Biblical Ethics: Choosing Right in a World Gone Wrong
1 in stockCompare
There is a difference between “ethics” and “morals.” Morals reflect the changing whims of culture, but ethics don’t change. For the Christian, ethics are rooted in the absolutes revealed in God’s Word to inform and nurture our moral conduct. Followers of Christ must learn to evaluate their thoughts and actions biblically.
James Eckman argues that, historically, Christians who hold to a set of ethical absolutes have related to their culture in one of three ways: separation, accommodation, or transformation. This book explores a synthesis of all three, viewed through the lens of Scripture, to formulate a strategy for engaging cultural issues today. Eckman examines critical ethical issues such as abortion, euthanasia, bioethics, human sexuality, politics, war, capital punishment, work, race, the arts, and the environment. He shapes an ethical response to each issue.
