Editorial Reviews


“Insightful, encyclopedic, biblical, and distinctively evangelical, this new book from Wayne Grudem is a massive contribution to Christian ethics. It will stand as one of the most important and definitive works of this generation. Readers should engage it chapter by chapter, and then keep it close at hand for continuing consultation.”
R. Albert Mohler Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

“Wayne Grudem and I have always been on the same page, both in theology and in theological method. Christian Ethics: An Introduction to Biblical Moral Reasoning has all the excellent features of his Systematic Theology: biblical fidelity, comprehensiveness, clarity, practical application, and interaction with other writers. His exhortations drive the reader to worship the triune God. I hope the book gets the wide distribution and enthusiastic response that it deserves.”
John M. Frame, Emeritus Professor of Systematic Theology and Philosophy, Reformed Theological Seminary

“This work by Wayne Grudem is the best text yet composed in biblical Christian ethics, and I mean that in several ways. It is more comprehensive, more insightful, and more applicable than any comparable work, and is sure to be a classroom classic. But what I like most is how Grudem unites a scholar’s mind with a disciple’s heart more committed to pleasing Christ than contemporaries and more zealous for strengthening the church than impressing the world.”
Daniel R. HeimbachFellow, L. Russ Bush Center for Faith and Culture; Senior Professor of Christian Ethics, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

“Wayne Grudem has a rare gift in making complex theological and ethical concepts accessible. He also has encyclopedic knowledge and an organized, analytical mind. All this is fully evident in this important book, which provides an invaluable resource to both scholars and practitioners.”
Peter S. Heslam, Senior Fellow, University of Cambridge; Director, Transforming Business

“Wayne Grudem is a master at cutting into meaty intellectual topics, seasoning them, and serving them up in flavorful, bite-sized morsels for the ordinary person to savor and digest. Don’t let the size of this book deter you! This rich feast will help you figure out what the Bible says about how to live today. Dig in. Taste the wisdom that is sweeter than honey. Eat from the bread that will bring health to your spirit and life to your bones.”
Mary A. Kassian, author, Girls Gone Wise

“So much in the field of ethics today merely describes the issues and the alternatives. The very idea that there is a ‘right’ answer to anything is anathema. In such a stagnant climate, Wayne Grudem’s Christian Ethics is a breath of fresh air. It demonstrates how the Bible provides specific answers to particular questions. However, this is not merely a compendium of his personal views on issues. Where his views are at odds with other views, even within evangelical Christianity, he explains those alternatives to his readers and invites comparison. Readers are challenged to think and are given the material they need to do so in a God-honoring way. We are in Grudem’s debt for this massive labor of love.”
John F. Kilner, Professor of Bioethics and Contemporary Culture, Forman Endowed Chair of Ethics and Theology, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School; Director of Bioethics Programs, Trinity International University

“Wayne Grudem has done it again. His Systematic Theology has equipped countless Christians, churches, and pastors in the truth of God’s Word in a clear, accessible, and faithful manner. Now his Christian Ethics promises to do the same in helping us apply God’s Word to our lives. In a time when obedience is often minimized in the name of grace, this book equips us to delight in God’s will for our lives in response to grace.”
C.J. Mahaney, Senior Pastor, Sovereign Grace Church of Louisville

“Through this encyclopedic treatment of applied ethics, Wayne Grudem shows how his method of whole-Bible hermeneutics can help Christians sort through the thorny ethical issues of the day. From the beginning of life to the end of life, and everywhere in between, Grudem demonstrates what faithfulness looks like in a God-centered, Scripture-centered life. Read with an open Bible and an open heart.”
C. Ben Mitchell, Graves Professor of Moral Philosophy, Union University, Jackson, Tennessee

“This is the best all-around book on Christian ethics I'm aware of, and I plan to require it as the primary textbook for my course on biblical ethics. Grudem writes in his characteristic style: clear, logical, accessible, and (usually!) persuasive.”
Andy Naselli, Assistant Professor of New Testament and Biblical Theology, Bethlehem College & Seminary; Elder, Bethlehem Baptist Church

“This nearly exhaustive treatment of Christian ethics is destined to become the standard evangelical text for many years to come. It is wide-ranging, thoughtful, and unafraid to engage with controversial issues and with those who take a different approach. Regardless of whether one can side with Grudem on each topic, all of us can benefit immensely from his lucid presentation. There is hardly an ethical issue he doesn’t address, and I will be consulting his work regularly for wisdom and guidance on a variety of matters that the church faces in a morally decadent and confused world. Highly recommended!”
Sam Storms, Senior Pastor, Bridgeway Church, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
