Now back in print with a new foreword by J. I. Packer, this classic study clearly shows the organic unity and continuity of the biblical ethic. Murray addresses ethical questions relating to such topics as marriage, labor, capital punishment, truthfulness, Jesus' teaching in the Sermon on the Mount, law and grace, and the fear of God. Though the Ten Commandments furnish the core of the biblical ethic, Murray points the reader again and again to all of Scripture as the basic authority in matters of Christian conduct.
"Church elders know well that applying the Bible’s teaching to ethical situations can be more difficult than it first appears. This work by John Murray helps us to learn to apply God’s law to issues like marriage and divorce, truth-telling, and more." —R.C. Sproul
