'Finding our best humanity in Jesus Christ' is the key theme of Andrew Cameron's fresh exploration, in which he seeks to understand ethics as springing from Jesus, and to show how identifying with Jesus Christ brings order and clarity to human life. 'In a world where everyone is an expert on right and wrong, this book tries to show how Jesus unifies the best of what you hear. He joins up messy lives.'



Cameron's accessible, coherent and innovative analysis is divided into seven parts. Each part contains several self-contained chapters that address some specific aspect of Christian thinking about ethics and life, and each chapter is cross-referenced to other key chapters. The chapters may be read in sequence, or dipped into in any order.





Part 1 considers some common ways of thinking about ethics (e.g. rules, rights, values and results).


Part 2 considers some arenas we are unaware of, but which have a huge impact on how we live.


Part 3 shows how Jesus Christ becomes a better main category than ethics for determining who we are and what we do.


Part 4 builds a 'unified field', shaped in response to Jesus Christ, by which we can orient ourselves to whatever is around us.


Part 5 examines some means by which we approach the daily details of life within this overall orientation.


Part 6 looks at some aspects of our life-package, or 'vocation', to see how they are located within the 'unified field'.


Part 7 visits some areas of discussion that cause great disagreement between Christians and others, and tries to show why.



Cameron offers a stimulating reappraisal of our cluttered, tumultuous lives and encourages us to see life through a different lens.

What is possibly the most exquisite single group of psalms - 120 - 134 - describe themselves as 'songs of ascents'. They recall the journeys of pilgrims from all over the land 'up' to Jerusalem to keep the feasts of the Lord. And as the people walked, they sang. God's people today may not make quite such a journey but, as Alec Motyer contests, in living the Christian life we have all embarked on a pilgrimage of the heart. The life of faith is to be lived on the move; through varying terrains but with a single destination - as we walk with eyes fixed on Jesus. A devotional read to hearten both weary and sure-footed travellers.
