In a self-centered culture, how do we demonstrate a God-centered ethic? This course presents a biblical model for ethics in a postmodern world, examining the ethical theories of obligation and value from a philosophical perspective. The lectures survey various ethical systems, identify unstated assumptions in ethical theories, and evaluate those theories for legitimacy, relevancy, and cogency. The goal of the course is to provide learners with a Christian framework of values and ethics, leading them to make God-honoring decisions in a truth-relative world.

This was a very thorough course. I took Biblical Ethics many years ago and this was intended to be a refresher, but the lecturer delivered a thorough course that took me much deeper and further than I remember in my previous course. Kudos to a top level course of study.Susan, Barbados
