"In this book a biblical scholar and a Christian ethicist bring together their particular competencies to explore the functional relatedness of their disciplines in a way that is accessible to pastors and laity in churches. The comprehensiveness of the authors' scope, the quality of their methodological proposal, and the clarity of their presentation mark this as a significant and useful book."
— Dana W. Wilbanks, The Journal of Religion
"This book develops a pattern of ethics into which biblical concerns are brought coherently."
— James M. Gustafson
"This book is a must. The authors work out a methodology to build a bridge across the abyss between biblical studies and ethics."
— Reginald H. Fuller
"An excellent introduction, clearly written and full of insight, this book meets a great need in seminaries and local churches."
— Brevard S. Childs
