Item description for Knowing Truth, Doing Good: Engaging New Testament Ethics (Facets) by Russell Pregeant...

Overview
As we face new, complex, and controversial ethical issues in our lives, turning to the writings of the New Testament for guidance can be a bewildering experience. One reason this is so, says Pregeant, is that the New Testament writings belong to a distant and very different cultural world, where many of our contemporary questions simply weren't imagined. Another reason is the open - ended character of language and the possibility - and desirability - of multiple and often competing strands of meaning in the New Testament writings. In Knowing Truth, Doing Good, Pregeant models a careful and sensitive approach to ethics in the New Testament writings. Instead of looking for "the New Testament answer" or "the early Christian view," he calls us to own our responsibility for the ways we interpret the Bible and for the ethical decisions we make in the Bible's name. Pregeant explores such topics as: Madness in the Methods: On Learning to Treat the Text as Subject The Ethics of the Jesus Movement The Ethics of the Canonical Writings Engaging New Testament Ethics
