This book responds to the moral challenge from Nietzsche and post-Christian feminists that confession of the authority of God is harmful to the human condition. It offers a new way of thinking about divine authority, and identifies Christian ethics with the dynamic of human response to God's revelation in Jesus Christ." "Using biblical and traditional resources, Esther D. Reed argues that the authority of God is not controlling or authoritarian but dialogic, answerable, and relational. What might have been a difficult, unexpected, even dangerous concept for Christian ethics, turns out to be essential to contemporary Christian life." "This book is both thoughtful and provocative, and is essential reading for all those who wish to think more deeply about the theological foundations of Christian ethics."--BOOK JACKET." ;
