p. 474. Living before God: worship and ethicslocked

  • David F. Ford


‘Living before God: worship and ethics’ is an introduction to thinking theologically about what it means to be human, starting from the phenomenon of worship as the key dynamic of human existence. Praise of God is a dynamic relationship which stretches minds, imaginations, emotions, wills, and bodies. The understanding of theological ethics, by those outside as well as inside religious communities, is of great importance in the contemporary world. All the religious traditions involve ethics, and many personal, family, political, educational, economic, medical, and other issues turn on whether there can be some agreement on what is right and wrong, better and worse.
