Format: Paperback
As Christians, too many of us have the tendency to approach ethics using the cultural standards from the past, or isolated proof texts that may be taken out of context. In this wonderful book, Dr. Jones gives a balanced, thoroughly biblical approach to a way of life that glorifies God and helps us to consistently apply our faith to the issues we will face. One excellent example:

"The divinely appointed way to good works is through the gracious gift of faith which unites us to Christ. The handiwork of God's new creation is exhibited in discipleship. Before faith our attitude was: 'Nobody tells me what to do.' Now the attitude of faith is: 'Show me what you want me to do.' Before faith we assumed our lives were our own to be lived as we pleased. Now with Jeremiah we confess, 'I know, O Lord, that a man's life is not his own; it is not for man to direct his steps (Jer. 10:23). Those whom God has bought with a price he does not leave on their own to figure out what to do with their new lives. God gives directions for the the good works he has prepared in advance for believers saved by grace to do. The directing principle of the Christian life is the will of God as revealed in Christ and the holy Scriptures and illuminated by the Holy Spirit." (p. 60).

Jones is clear, Biblical, and grace-centered throughout. After setting up the framework, he also shows how to apply it to some big areas of ethics - Marriage & Family and Divorce and Remarriage. If you are desiring to base your beliefs about issues on the truth found in Scripture, and not on political, cultural or social opinions - this is the book for you. Thank you Dr. Jones for doing such outstanding service for the Kingdom. Soli Deo Gloria!

I am giving five stars to this book for one thing: its discussion of the Christian concept of love. I found that discussion to be among the best I read in all my dissertation travels on the topic. I'm indebted to the author. Here's a quote: “The quite proper insistence on God’s love for sinners as love for the undeserving is a far cry from saying that God’s love, and hence all love worthy of the name, is ‘spontaneous and unmotivated’ [as Nygren says]. God loves sinners because he created them for himself, and though they are undeserving of his grace they are not worthless in his sight.” Biblical Christian Ethics (Grand Rapids: Baker, 1994), 47.

Dr. Jones bypasses all of the current fads in ethical writing by laying out clear, concise and common-sense information. His work is a must-read for anyone in today's society who believes that right and wrong contain absolutes, and that there are logical paths for discovering these. A brilliant professor, Dr. Jones brings his points home with equal clarity in print. Christians in business NEED this book in their library, and they need to read it over and over again.
