Hard nosed approach to ethical decision-making. Nov 8, 2006
I find Smedes' approach to ethical decision-making extremely helpful, especially for people who do not settle for hand-me-down rules and simplistic solutions. While I do not agree with all that Smedes concludes in all of his ethical musings, I find myself constantly challenged by what he writes, to think critically about life's issues, which are often complex, and full of tensions, paradoxes and uncertainties. Every chapter gives an insightful, real-life and highly readable account of the principles(outlined in the Table of Contents) he commends to us in ethical decision-making. I find that his emphasis on developing the character rather than having the 'right answers' exactly right and his conclusion that 'getting it right is not the most important thing, being forgiven is'(rough paraphrase) tugs at the heart of all who yearn and desire to live right and yet find ourselves falling repeatedly into the hands of grace and hence energized by it.
substandard book Aug 6, 2003
This is a substandard book in ethics and quite mediocre. It makes huge assumptions and provides no explanations for concepts such as "human nature" (the was "man" is supposed to be) --->eh? Quite boring and intellectually dispicable. The christian preaching is quite unbearable for any serious reader familiarized with decent works in ethics. Ah... and comments such as "you ought never betray your country" just put me over the edge. I would give it -5 stars if I could!
