DOING THE TRUTH

Dean Pike of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, New York is perhaps best known for his handling of controversial issues from the pulpit. He is an outspoken and fearless champion of the truth as he sees it and generally he sees very clearly. In this book he appears in another role for which he is also eminently fitted. For this book is a summary of Christian Ethics suitable for use in the classroom or for other serious students of Christianity. Dean Pike is a first-rate scholar and his previous legal training enables him to marshal his arguments in convincing fashion. Among the topics discussed are ""Freedom and Responsibility"", ""Religion and Ethics"", ""The Purpose of Life"", ""Vocation"", ""Sin"", ""Justification"", ""Thanksgiving"", ""Worship and Evangelism"", ""God and Caesar"" ""The Christian and Public Questions"", ""Sex, Marriage and the Family"", ""Christian Love"". Christian Ethics, as Dean Pike expounds it, has a strong theological foundation.
