How Serious Are You About THE Christian Life Jun 14, 2008
This book is for those who are serious and who are facing the question of whether or not there IS such a thing as a distinctive Christian life. The term for such a comprehensive exploration is "Ethic" but Frame properly recognizing that modern terminology tends to understand "ethic" more narrowly, chooses "Christian Life" instead. His book addresses the idea of a Christian ethos, a comprehensive world view that encompasses the whole of life and subordinates it to the demands of God.
I believe that a distinctive Christian ethic is a corollary and product of saving faith; that a person who truly believes will be lead through scripture toward the "path" which becomes a "life" which evidences a true and lively faith. Frame does useful work in laying out in some detail the components of such a life. I thoroughly appreciate the structure of the book. He distinguishes a Christian ethic from others by drawing attention to the presuppositions which under gird them. He amplifies the distinctives of a Christian life by using the major headings of the ten commandments. Though I have some quibbles with him in some of his conclusions, this is a useful book and should be on the shelves of every Christian who desires to explore the call of Christ on his or her life.
But the question remains - how serious are you about the Christian life. The book is 1000 pages long and is not something you take to the beach for a little recreational reading. It is a serious work for serious readers. Non-Christians can benefit from it by learning just how radical a Christian world view is from their own presuppositions. Christians will find a resource that may be perused or read straight through as questions arise. This may be Frame's best work.
