Living as the people of God

Nothing confuses Christian ethics quite like the Old Testament. Some readers struggle through its pages and conclude that they must obey its moral laws but may disregard its ceremonial and civil laws. Others abandon its instruction altogether in favor of a strictly New Testament ethic. Neither option, argues Chris Wright, gives the Old Testament its due.

In this innovative approach to Old Testament ethics, Wright examines a theological, social and economic framework for Old Testament ethics. Then he explores a variety of themes in relation to contemporary issues: economics, the land and the poor; politics and a world of nations; law and justice; society and culture; and the way of the individual.

This fresh, illuminating study provides a clear basis for a biblical ethic that is faithful to
the God of both Testaments.
