Overview

In this challenging book Cyril Rodd questions many of the assumptions that lie behind recent studies of Old Testament ethics. He views the “strangeness” of the biblical world and wonders whether there is an Old Testament ethics in the modern sense of the word—finding rather that the Old Testament writers did not regard many of today’s ethical dilemmas as problems at all. Dr. Rodd examines all the Old Testament writings on five ethical issues: the poor, war, treatment of animals, ecology and the position of women. He considers their validity and relevance for today and discusses the extent to which they can be referred to for authority—or for inspiration and guidance.
