The God Who Commands

Richard J. Mouw

“. . . A striking and first-rate contribution to contemporary ethics . . . for those who wish to understand what is most distinctive and most compelling in the development of Calvinist ethics.” — Alasdair MacIntyre, University of Notre Dame

Richard J. Mouw, Professor of Faith and Public Life at Fuller Theological Seminary, has published many books, including Distorted Truth

“Richard Mouw probes, from a Calvinist tradition, the place of obedience to a divine command. . . . Mouw suggests that a Calvinist perspective on moral theology can profit from an openness to some contemporary developments, particularly narrativist ethics, feminist thought and the insights gained from the charismatic movement.” — America

“Mouw’s book is a valuable contribution to contemporary ethics by a scholar whose profound love for the God of revelation is evident on every page.” — New Oxford Review

“This is an excellent book, astutely crafted and argued, Mouw has reintroduced divine command morality to contemporary Christian ethics, and his work should be central in the dialogue he encourages.” — The Christian Century

“Mouw’s way of posing the complex issues in fresh clear ways always illumines them, and his incisive distinctions and insights will challenge others to revise their understandings of divine command ethics.” — The Journal of Religion
