Christian Ethcis  Feb 2, 2007
Book great condition at a great value. Received in a timely manner.
Rediculously biased  Jun 11, 2006
Geisler manages to slaughter an entire army of straw-men in this book. I was rather disappointed, as Geisler is usually a very good author. In fact, I even agree with him in choosing graded absolutism over any of the other ethical options he chose. However, in all fairness to the other positions, Geisler simply painted a simplistic picture of each and attacked positions I doubt that many people really hold. Not only that, but he did not give responses other positions would give to arguments made against them, yet for graded absolutism he had many pages responding to criticisms of it. It was simply not a fair overview of different ethical approaches.

As to the second half where he gives consideration to specific ethical dilemmas (e.g. abortion, suicide, etc.) he once again fails to give positions he disagrees with a fair hearing. Mind you, I agree with most of Geisler's decisions, so I am not complaining that he did not give my positions a fair hearing. I am complaining that my position did not win fairly in Geisler's book. It was pitted against very simplistic and biased opinions of what other positions believe, and I am frankly quite disappointed in Geisler for putting out such an unfair evaluation of those views.

Overall grade: D+
Christian Ethics and God's Law  Feb 25, 2006
How you determine one's own human behavior? How do you define ethics when one believes the Bible is God's word? How do you write on this topic and keep it under a thousand pages? First the book must be written that incorporates scripture. The book cannot be kept brief if the author tries to include every angle of an argument. This book is a text book, so it does have to present alternative argument. This book does and I understand it does an adequate job of presenting alternative views and why the view is not acceptable to a Christian.

This is a Christian Ethics text book, so its focus should be on biblical scripture to determine what is right and and what is wrong. I have never read an alternative Christian Ethics text book. I presume those written for a public University or another secular institution would incorporate quite different type of arguments. These books would use less bible scripture, quote more nonreligious philosophers, maybe some quotes from Christian theologians, but relying more on a buddhist, zen, or Hindu philosophy.

Norman Geisler presents ethics from a Christian perspective. He knows there is one true god and that God gives us absolute truth n His Holy Word called the Bible. This not a book on Christian Apologetics, but is a philosophy that comes forth from an author that has written a book on Christian Apologetics. Other authors have written books with the preposition that Christianity is not true and others who argue its arguments do not have any weight. These authors come from a different way of thinking in the Universe.

Does this work help the Christian understand Biblical truth? Those who study its content will more equipped to dismiss bad Biblical arguments about human behavior. It will also better place the individual to understand non biblical arguments to not be from God. This should be the purpose of reading this book.
Decent introduction to Christian Ethics  May 22, 2004
This book is a decent introduction to Christian Ethics. Geisler starts with survey's of various approaches to Christian ethics, and then moves into various ethical issues such as abortion, war, ecology, and other major ethical topics. In each chapter, Geisler reviews what different positions on various topics are: for, against, and somewhere-in-between. He offers Biblical and philosophical criticisms of each surveyed position. The end of each chapter contains some suggested books for further reading.

There are some draw backs to this book though. Firstly, this book sometimes seems to read more like a stero manual, especially early on. Secondly, though this book tries to be objective in its survey of various views, Geisler tends to make it very evident what he believes the proper view is, and usually reserves his personal views for the end of each chapter. Thirdly, after the first 8 or 9 chapters or so, I tended to find myself simply skimming the book, as it became pretty easy to anticipate what he was going to say... which made the book rather dry to read. Forthly, I think it would have been nice if Geisler included a chapter on birth control. Finally, I think this book is a little out of date, and probably could use more interaction with more influencial theologians on each side of the various debates.

This book makes for a good introduction to Christian ethics, though it is not exactly a page turner. Ideal perhaps for Bible college text- which is why I read it.

Good Intro but everything else stinks  Jan 12, 2002
Geisler builds the best straw man models that I have ver seen. He presents a general explanation of each of the models of ethical decision making. The problem is that he makes sure to highlight the weaknesses in all of the models except for Graded Absolutism. There are weaknesses in that model that he didn't deal with. Geisler chooses a pretty good model but doesn't give fair representation to the other models.

Geisler does the worse job of applying these models that I have ever seen. He makes a lot of assumptions while writing his book. Geisler cites many numbers and statistics without citing a person. Once again he builds great straw men in his arguments. He doesn't give a fair representation to the opposing opinion.

I recommend getting this book, only if you have to.
