Christians engaged with their contemporary world have renewed their interest in the ethical authority of the Old Testament. In the midst of various and sometimes conflicting approaches to Old Testament ethics, many have found sure footing and satisfying insight in the paradigmatic perspective developed by Christopher Wright's first book, An Eye for an Eye: The Place of Old Testament Ethics Today.
Walking in the Ways of the Lord advances that perspective in several ways. Wright first investigates the perennial issues in approaching Scripture's ethical authority. He then considers the various ways in which the church has understood and lived under the ethical authority of the Old Testament, including a survey of contemporary approaches. Related to this are the question of how ethical decisions are made in the Old Testament and the ethical relevance of Israel as a society. Finally, in a series of insightful studies he employs his method by exploring the specific issues of land, jubilee, the state, human rights, and the struggle against corruption, dishonesty and injustice.
