The Roots of Reformed Moral Theology
Reformed moral teaching embraces the authority of Scripture, a stable moral order from creation, and the moral law expressed in the Ten Commandments as a guide for developing a virtuous life. But did such ideas radically appear during the Reformation? In The Roots of Reformed Moral Theology, Bruce P. Baugus traces the story of moral theology from its biblical origins to the eve of the Reformation, demonstrating that Reformed moral sensibilities were received and developed from the greater church tradition. The result is a commendable survey that pays particular attention to the questions and themes most significant to the formation of what became a distinctly Reformed moral theology.
