A massive amazing look at the New Testament and how it relates to created a set of morals or ethics. In the first main section Hays tackles different books/authors to try and get some sort of consensus in the approach from them. In approaching in this manner there are some illuminating discoveries made from the different books which help us see similarities and differences in their respective approaches to handling ethics. After giving a thorough response to each he spends a chapter each on several hot issues among Christians. I really appreciated these chapters because it finally brought together all the work from the main portion of the book and should how they can directly apply to modern ethics. Also because of all the work he did to try and really understand what the authors said the handling of the different issues was done with grace rather than just emotions. Really an excellent book that I'll definitely be coming back to in the future.
