The world around us is increasingly hostile to Christian moral values. How should we live in the midst of such a toxic culture? We know the Bible is our guide, but how can we be sure we are interpreting it correctly, in regards to ethical questions such as wealth, poverty, telling the truth, marriage, divorce, birth control, abortion, euthanasia, homosexuality, business practices, environmental stewardship, and several other key issues? On a more practical level, how can we know God's will in the ordinary decisions of life?
In an effort to answer these concerns, Wayne Grudem, bestselling author of Systematic Theology, draws on forty years of teaching classes in ethics to write this wide-ranging introduction to biblical moral reasoning, organized according to the structure of the Ten Commandments. Through this work, he is issuing a call for Christians to live lives of personal holiness, as he presents a vision of the Christian life that is full of joy and blessing through living each day in a way that is pleasing to God.
