Overview

Love Your Neighbor is a concise introduction to Christian ethics. It begins with a look at the biblical basis for morality, defines and describes various philosophical approaches to the subject of ethics, then connects biblical morality with the idea of absolute truth in philosophy.

The book then moves from its philosophical basis to a practical application of Christian ethics, considering a wide range of social, biomedical, and personal issues. It does not take a partisan or denominational approach to these issues, but squarely faces them with an open mind and open Bible.

The book is based on sound biblical and philosophical reasoning and does not tell readers what to think but encourages them to think biblically and critically through these issues.

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
"I've never seen a single book that covers the waterfront of ethical issues in a biblically faithful way at a level available to high school readers. That is, until now. Love Your Neighbor is clear, concise, broad, biblical, and readable."
J. P. Moreland, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Biola University; author, The Soul: How We Know It’s Real and Why It Matters

"Those who are looking for simplistic answers will not find them here; those willing to grapple with both the Bible and real life will welcome this opportunity to think carefully about the choices that confront us every single day."
Erwin W. Lutzer, Senior Pastor, The Moody Church, Chicago, IL

"Though they tackle head-on the key philosophical questions, Geisler and Snuffer write in a style that will be easily understood and greatly appreciated by youth and adults alike."
Josh McDowell, author and speaker

"Geisler and Snuffer show how the triune God and 'the greatest commandment' help us navigate through the array of difficult questions that challenge us today. Students will find this resource both helpful and accessible."
Ravi Zacharias, Founder and President, Ravi Zacharias International Ministries; author, Jesus Among Other Gods

"Addresses the great issues of our day from a distinctly biblical position. How encouraging to see subjects like lying, cheating, and stealing addressed once again, to say nothing of the more obvious issues that most people think about."
Paige Patterson, President, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

"Love Your Neighbor avoids telling us what to believe or how to behave in any given situation, but presents clear guidelines to help us determine where the high ground can be found."
John Ankerberg, Host of The John Ankerberg Show; President and Founder, The Ankerberg Theological Research Institute

    Timely Issues for our Uncertain Times

    There are few books on the market that handle such difficult and timely subjects as well as this book. Geisler and Snuffer handle powderkeg issues with wisdom and grace. An overview of ethics, this book is unique because of the inclusion of topics such as civil disobedience, war, euthanasia, stem-cell research and ecology. There are not too many resources for a Christian to learn about these things from a balanced non-partisan perspective. The inclusion of these issues makes this book one-of-a-kind and a must-read for anyone who longs to learn what God thinks about these timely issues.
