Review

"A very helpful book. I found myself referring to it again and again."-- Harold Kushner, author of "When All You've Wanted Isn't Enough""In politics, as in life, you have a gut feeling of what is right or wrong. But once in a while you have to sit and analyze. Lewis Smedes provides good guidelines to do just that."-- Barbara Boxer, congresswoman"In our times of shattered traditions and ever-increasing moral dilemmas, Smedes's book serves to amplify our often still voice of conscience."-- "Publishers Weekly"

Format: Paperback
I find Smedes' approach to ethical decision-making extremely helpful, especially for people who do not settle for hand-me-down rules and simplistic solutions. While I do not agree with all that Smedes concludes in all of his ethical musings, I find myself constantly challenged by what he writes, to think critically about life's issues, which are often complex, and full of tensions, paradoxes and uncertainties. Every chapter gives an insightful, real-life and highly readable account of the principles(outlined in the Table of Contents) he commends to us in ethical decision-making. I find that his emphasis on developing the character rather than having the 'right answers' exactly right and his conclusion that 'getting it right is not the most important thing, being forgiven is'(rough paraphrase) tugs at the heart of all who yearn and desire to live right and yet find ourselves falling repeatedly into the hands of grace and hence energized by it.

I actually took a couple of Ethics classes from Smedes in graduate school. He was an intelligent and gentle soul. In this book, and in person, I really valued his love-centered, non-simplistic, critical thinking approach to making moral choices in a complex and pluralistic world. This is never an easy task but Smedes gives us some good guidelines for finding our way.

This is a substandard book in ethics and quite mediocre. It makes huge assumptions and provides no explanations for concepts such as "human nature" (the was "man" is supposed to be) --->eh? Quite boring and intellectually dispicable. The christian preaching is quite unbearable for any serious reader familiarized with decent works in ethics. Ah... and comments such as "you ought never betray your country" just put me over the edge. I would give it -5 stars if I could!
