"A comprehensive handbook for thinking about the realm of ethics and the moral life but with particular attention to what the Bible has to say about such matters. Scholars in both fields will want to have this volume in their library."--Patrick D. Miller, Princeton Theological Seminary

This one-stop reference book on the vital relationship between Scripture and ethics offers helpful orientation and perspective for students, pastors, and scholars. Written to respond to the movement among biblical scholars and ethicists to recover the Bible for moral formation, it is the best reference work available on the intersection of these two fields. The volume shows how Christian Scripture and Christian ethics are necessarily intertwined and offers up-to-date treatment of five hundred biblical, traditional, and contemporary topics, including tithing, euthanasia, the Trinity, population policy and control, healthcare systems in Scripture, the seven deadly sins, idolatry, the image of God, terrorism, the Sermon on the Mount, vegetarianism, and the Dead Sea Scrolls. The stellar ecumenical list of contributors consists of more than two hundred leading scholars from the fields of biblical studies and ethics.

As I already owned the IVP Pocket Dictionary of Ethics, I wondered whether this new title might be a book I even needed (now the tittle of IVP alone tells me it is only a starting place but I have multivolume Bible dictionaries to supplement it). Having read the blog on it I decided to take a chance and get it. I compared a few entries and found not surprisingly that Baker’s was far more in depth. One thing that has impressed me about this dictionary in the several entries I have read is not only the depth of articles but the quality and how they give you not only the facts but a depth theological insight. This book does not simply give you a simple answer to ethical questions but places it in a Biblical framework and begins well thought out theological implications to help you understand not only what the Bible has to say but how to best relate it to these same or similar questions we ask today. Strangely enough I found The Dictionary of Scripture and Ethics almost devotional for me ...

Strangely enough I found The Dictionary of Scripture and Ethics almost devotional for me in that at the end of reading more than one article I felt the need to ponder what I read and pray over it (not in that it disturbed my faith but left me realizing deeper implications of scripture on the topic). This is not an ultra conservative book but it respects differing viewpoints and did not seem to me to be pushing any agenda, beyond perhaps a rejection of simplistic black and white answers. Our world is full of colour and this book helps to think about these issues in just that the mullti-dimensional colour of life. I am very happy to have bought this book and grateful that Accordance has brought it to us.
