The Moral Vision of the New Testament

Community, Cross, New Creation
  • By Richard Hays
< P> A leading expert in New Testament ethics discovers in the biblical witness a unified ethical vision & ndash; & ndash; centered in the themes of community, cross and new creation & ndash; & ndash; that has profound relevance in today's world. Richard Hays shows how the New Testament provides moral guidance on the most troubling ethical issues of our time, including violence, divorce, homosexuality and abortion. < /P> < P> "Hays' passionately written book, with its bold agenda, has neither peer nor rival." & ndash; & ndash; Leander E. Keck, Winkley Professor of Biblical Theology, Yale Divinity School < /P> < P> "There are few people I would rather read for the actual exposition of the New Testament than Richard Hays. This book is filled with wonderful readings that not only inform us about how to think better about the so& ndash; called 'problem of the relation between the New Testament and ethics' but, even more, speak of how our lives should be lived in the light of Christ's cross. & ndash; Stanley Hauerwas, Gilbert T. Rowe Professor of Theological Studies, Duke University Divinity School < /P> < P> "Richard Hays has succeeded brilliantly in bringing New Testament studies, contemporary theology, and ethics into a deeply reflective conversation... Hays' point is that the New Testament norms the Christian life, and, with the help of imagination and metaphor, can address the moral conflicts of our time." & ndash; & ndash; Ellen T. Charry, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University < /P> < P> "This book isn't just a breath of fresh air. It's a hurricane, blowing away the fog of half& ndash; understoodpseudo& ndash; morality and fashionable compromise, and revealing instead the early Christian vision of true humanness and genuine holiness. If this isn't a book for our time, I don't know what is." & ndash; & ndash; N. T. Wright, author of< i> The New Testament and the People of God < /i> < /P>
