Stanley Grenz masterfully leads his readers into a theological engagement with moral inquiry. In a concise, yet readable fashion, this book sets forth the Greek foundations of the study of ethics. He then surveys approaches to ethics that are both explicit and implicit in the Bible. He expertly discusses classical Christian ethical systems and overviews several more recent Christian ethicists. Grenz concludes with his own constructive proposal, based on the truth and communitarian practice of Christian love. 379 pages, from IVP.
