"This volume will deal mostly with ethics, but also with a number of other subjects, grouped around the general title The Doctrine of the Christian Life. The ethics course I taught at Westminster Seminary had that title, but it was James Hurley, as I recall, who suggested to me that the Christian life was much more than ethics. The Christian life is not only a matter of following rules of morality, but a dynamic experience: living in the fallen world, in fellowship with the living God. So in this book I will discuss not only ethics (the normative perspective), but also the culture in which we live (the situational perspective) and the resources of redemption on which we draw daily (the existential perspective)." -from the author's preface

Customer Reviews for The Doctrine of the Christian Life
This is the first book I've read from John Frame, which I picked up at the local Southern Baptist seminary bookstore (Frame's theology is Reformed). I am only 142 pages into it (it is 1000 pages long), but I am VERY impressed with what I have read thus far. Frame builds his ethical system around a correct response to God's lordship attributes of Control, Authority, and Covenant Presence. His approach is holistic and very biblical.
