This book is based on the conviction that the Bible is God's inerrant word given for all humankind, and that it presents the framework of a total life-and-world view. Its doctrine and its ethical principles are relevant to the social and moral issues of all times. The author contends that until we learn to use the Bible and apply it to such problems as capital punishment, genetic engineering, homosexuality, and labor strikes, we will be at the mercy of today's humanistic value-shapers and our own uninformed feelings.
