This book serves as an introduction to the field of biblical ethics, a subcategory of the discipline of moral theology. It differs from moral philosophy in that biblical ethics is distinctively Christian, and it is more specific than Christian ethics proper because it specifically focuses upon the application of the moral law -- as it is revealed in Scripture -- to daily living.

Introduction to Biblical Ethics explains the nature, relevancy, coherency, and structure of the moral law as revealed throughout the Bible. In addition to covering the foundational elements of biblical ethics, major issues investigated in this volume include: different types of law in Scripture, the relationship between the law and the gospel, and issues related to the prospect of conflicting moral absolutes.

Additionally, after a discussion of ethical methodology, and using the Ten Commandments as a moral rubric, author David W. Jones explores the place of the moral law in the lives of believers. In the final chapters, the events surrounding the giving of the Decalogue are surveyed, and the application of each of the Ten Commandments to Christian living is explored.
David W. Jones is associate professor of Christian Ethics and director of the Th.M. Program at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina. He has coauthored God, Marriage, and Family (with Andreas J. Köstenberger) and Health, Wealth, and Happiness: Has the Prosperity Gospel Overshadowed the Gospel of Christ? (with Russell S. Woodbridge).
