- As general editor Joel B. Green of Fuller Seminary notes in his introduction, while the disciplines of biblical studies and Christian ethics have not always paid consistent attention to one another, the past several decades have been a period of increased cross-fertilization resulting in the production of a large and diverse literature. A single-volume work attempting to cover such expansive conceptual territory will have to be very judicious indeed in its selection and treatment of potentially relevant topics. Given its North American, broadly evangelical readership—aiming to be of use to "students, pastors, and scholars" so that the light of God's word "may be restored in the church"—this Baker Academic volume generally succeeds in off ering clear, concise, and fair introductory treatments of a broad range of often complex and contested biblical and ethical subjects.
