"Geisler has condensed a graduate level course on ethics into an easy-to-read primer/reference work. The discussions are current and complete and take the reader effortlessly through intelligent Christian thought on profoundly difficult questions."
--H. Wayne House, Themelios
^^In this thorough update of a classic textbook, noted Christian thinker Norman Geisler evaluates contemporary ethical options (such as antinomianism, situation ethics, and legalism) and pressing issues of the day (such as euthanasia, homosexuality, and divorce) from a biblical perspective.


The second edition is significantly expanded and updated, with new material and charts throughout the book. There are new chapters on animal rights, sexual ethics, and the biblical basis for ethical decisions, as well as four new appendixes addressing drugs, gambling, pornography, and birth control. The author has significantly updated his discussion of abortion, biomedical ethics, war, and ecology and has expanded the selected readings, bibliography, and glossary.^

A Classic in Christian Ethics Revised for a New GenerationThis thorough update of a classic text evaluates contemporary ethical options and pressing issues of the day from a biblical perspective. The significantly expanded second edition includes new chapters on animal rights, sexual ethics, and the biblical basis for ethical decisions. It also contains four new appendixes addressing drugs, gambling, pornography, and birth control.Praise for the first edition"Many books are available on the market on the subject of ethics. What makes Geisler's book unique is its assistance to the newcomer working through his or her personal system of ethics, as well as its service to everyone as a reference work surveying the different ethical systems and issues. . . . Geisler has condensed a graduate level course on ethics into an easy-to-read primer/reference work. The discussions are current and complete and take the reader effortlessly through intelligent Christian thought on profoundly difficult questions. [This] is a book you will return to often as you face ethical dilemmas in our modern and progressive world."--H. Wayne House, Themelios"A welcome overview. . . . The text throughout is divided into small sections to make it digestible, and much of the discussion is in terms which any interested reader will be able to follow. . . . A lengthy bibliography and a glossary, together with helpfully full indexes, complete this substantial book. . . . For both groups [interested laypeople and (presumably Christian) students] this will prove a useful tool."--Nigel M. de S. Cameron, Scottish Bulletin of Evangelical Theology"[This book] confirms Geisler's well-deserved reputation as an experienced and accomplished author on account of its organization, clarity, and simplicity of style. . . . Geisler makes frequent recourse to texts of the Scriptures to substantiate his own positions throughout. The book has a glossary, a bibliography, and handy indexes. . . . It should fulfill [Geisler's] desire to be 'a useable textbook for those seeking a survey of basic ethical options and issues.'"--Norman Ford, Heythrop Journal
