Remembering Jesus: Christian Community, Scripture, and the Moral Life
From The Publisher:
In the past decade many Christians have embraced the "What Would Jesus Do?" campaign, which encourages them to base their decisions and actions on this question. Allen Verhey's Remembering Jesus takes a serious look at what Jesus really said and did and applies it to contemporary Christian ethics.
Verhey asserts that following Jesus requires remembering him, and in order to remember Jesus, Christians must read and understand Scripture, where the memory of Jesus is found. By remembering Jesus, this book contributes to the effort of Christians to discern the shape and style of life "worthy of the gospel." More specifically, this book displays the implications of Christian integrity for sexual, medical, economic, and political ethics, seeking to understand what Jesus would really have to say about these issues today.
