The Moral Vision of the New Testament: Community, Cross, New Creation • A Contemporary Introduction to New Testament Ethics
Richard B Hays
From The Publisher:
The leading expert in New Testament ethics discovers in the New Testament a unified ethicall vision with relevance in today's world. Addressing complex test cases such as violence, divorce, homosexuality, and abortion, Hays shows how the New Testament provides challenging moral guidance on the hottest issues of our time.
"This book isn't just a breath of fresh air. It's a hurricane, blowing away the fog of half-understood pseudo-morality and fashionable compromise, and revealing instead the early Christian vision of true humanness and genuine holiness. If this isn't a book for our time, I don't know what is."
