The acclaimed Dictionary of Scripture and Ethics (DSE), written to respond to the movement among biblical scholars and ethicists to recover the Bible for moral formation, offered needed orientation and perspective on the vital relationship between Scripture and ethics. The Old Testament and Ethics utilizes material from the DSE to introduce students to the use of the Old Testament for moral formation. This handy book-by-book survey of the Old Testament contains key articles written by leading scholars and targeted to the needs of the classroom. It will serve as an excellent supplementary text in Old Testament courses.
