7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By S. McDonald on October 31, 2007
Format: Paperback
Noting that academic biblical scholars and Christian ethicists have been methodologically estranged for some decades now, the author seeks to reframe the whole Bible-and-ethics discussion in terms of this question: What role does the Bible play in God's generation of a holy people--and how do we participate in that regeneration? The author first examines various major contemporary thinkers on the Bible and Christian ethics, including John Howard Yoder, Brevard Childs, John Webster, and Dietrich Bonhoeffer. He then undertakes major discussions of Augustine and Martin Luther, unpacking their interpretation of the Psalms. Finally, he articulates the processes of renewal in God's people. His close study of a few individual psalms shows how we enter the world of praise in which all human life is comprehended within God's work--and is thus renewed. Immersion in the exegetical tradition of the Christian faith, the author argues, must be the heart and soul of theology and ethics.
