A Survey of Old Testament Ethics

A Survey of Old Testament Ethics

What could the Old Testament teach us about how best to live our lives? This is the central question of Applying Old Testament Ethics with Dr. John Goldingay.

Ethics is not merely about tricky situations or hot topics. Instead, ethics asks questions about what sort of people we are, how we think, what sort of things we do and don’t do, and how we ought to live our everyday lives. This material is based on Dr. Goldingay’s recent book by InterVarsity Press, Old Testament Ethics: A Guided Tour, along with other independent writings from Dr. Goldingay. It features Goldingay’s own translation of the Old Testament and discussion questions for further reflection.

We estimate that this will take you 7 hours to complete (but not all in one sitting!).
