Ethics. What is good? What is right? How can we know what we ought to do? Arthur F.

He then outlines a Christian ethic and applies it to four moral issues: human rights, criminal punishment, the legislation of morality, and sexual behaviour.

About the Author:

Arthur F. Holmes (Ph.D., Northwestern) is professor emeritus of philosophy at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois.

Review:

"This book deserves the attention of all who are committed to careful Christian thinking about the moral life. Students will find a solid basis for developing a Christian perspective on moral philosophical issues. Scholars will gain important clues on how to pursue these matters in a biblically sensitive manner." (Richard J. Mouw, Fuller Theological Seminary)

"Arthur Holmes has given us a masterful introduction to a Christian approach to ethics set off . . . from humanistic options that, in effect, undermine the foundations of any ethic at all." (Lewis B. Smedes, Fuller Theological Seminary)

"This book is a joy to read. It is utterly lucid -- in thought, organization and style." (Peter Kreeft, Boston College)
