What Does the Lord Require?: A Guide for Preaching and Teaching Biblical Ethics [NOOK Book]

Overview

"Walt Kaiser is the right person to write this book. The work reveals a lifetime of experience in the Scriptures, in the classroom, and in churches. Kaiser's strategy of working primarily with one or two focal texts in relation to each ethical issue addressed is a unique and valuable aspect of the book. His close adherence to the biblical text offers a fine model for expository preaching and teaching.

Overview

"Walt Kaiser is the right person to write this book. The work reveals a lifetime of experience in the Scriptures, in the classroom, and in churches. Kaiser's strategy of working primarily with one or two focal texts in relation to each ethical issue addressed is a unique and valuable aspect of the book. His close adherence to the biblical text offers a fine model for expository preaching and teaching. This work will serve well as a textbook for college- and seminary-level ethics courses and as a trustworthy guide for pastors, lay leaders, and all ministry professionals who desire to apply faithfully the texts of Scripture to many of today's crucial ethical issues. I highly recommend this superb volume and expect it will have a long and useful life."--Robert V. Rakestraw, Bethel Seminary, St. Paul, Minnesota

"In today's churches, many ethical pronouncements are made without firm biblical grounding, and many biblical sermons are preached without concrete application to the issues of the day. This book will help preachers and teachers speak to the ethical challenges facing the church from an informed perspective rooted in sound biblical theology and solid scholarship. I heartily recommend it."--John Jefferson Davis, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

"Many people feel overwhelmed by the number and complexity of the moral questions we face. And with people knowing less of God's Word, the need for accurate biblical guidance for navigating today's ethical dilemmas has never been greater. Thankfully, Walter Kaiser fills the void by clearly pointing us back to our biblical roots for moral guidance and by unpacking the meaning and implications of central teaching passages from the Bible. Kaiser has done it again!"--David K. Clark, Bethel Seminary, St. Paul, Minnesota

"This series of studies will prove an invaluable tool to any Christian leader and will leave every thinking believer, even if not in agreement with all Dr. Kaiser's conclusions on every issue, sharing the Jubilee Centre's desire to explore further the continued relevance of biblical principles to the social, economic, and political questions facing modern society."--John Hayward, Jubilee Centre, Cambridge, England
