Resurgent interest in Carl Henry as one of America’s finest evangelical theologians has reignited enthusiasm in his formative works. His work on ethics was essential both to his leadership of Christianity Today and to his magnum opus God, Revelation and Authority. This study addresses both the moral revelation of Christianity and the ethical alternatives of speculative philosophy.
