Keith D Stanglin
Not Available Request an Exam Copy


A reintroduction to ethics for the Christian church.

How should Christians live? How should they approach today's difficult moral questions? In Ethics beyond Rules, Keith Stanglin answers those questions with: What does love require?

Ethics beyond Rules is a clear and accessible introduction for thoughtful Christians who want to lead moral lives. Stanglin's easy-to-understand Christian ethical system doesn't have a long list of rules to follow but instead bases moral decision-making on love. This resource does not attempt to answer every ethical question and social issue present in today's culture but provides a model to use when reasoning through concrete issues, including:

  • abortion
  • sexual ethics
  • consumerism
  • technology
  • politics

Stanglin's love-based framework for moral decision-making engages Scripture and the historic Christian faith, giving Christians the tools to consider the ethical problems of today and the foundation to confront new issues in the years to come.

"Engagingly written, persuasively argued, and decisively relevant. Every Christian should purchase two copies, one to read, and one to give to a friend, because this book is that good."

--TIMOTHY C. TENNENT, president, Asbury Theological Seminary
