Reviews - What do customers think about BIBLICAL ETHICS?
A good ethical survey of the Bible Jun 7, 2001
Maston's book is regarded as a classic in Christian ethics among many conservatives. He divides his book into eight sections and surveys the ethical emphases of each: Law, Prophets, Writings, Apocryphal and Intertestamental Literature, Synoptic Gospels, Paul, Johnannine Literature and Other New Testament Writings. Maston does a good job of noting the ethical teachings of each section but also relating each unique emphasis to the biblical revelation as a whole. He makes some problematic assumptions based on outdated biblical interpretation, and these will raise the eyebrow of the careful reader. Maston wisely avoids wide application of biblical teaching to specific ethical issues, thus making his book less controversial while focusing on the Bible alone. His work may not appeal to more mainstream thinkers, but is a good introduction to the ethical teachings of the Bible.
