Ethics in a permissive society was a book published in 1971 an features a Christian apologetic's take on social issues of the day. The first two chapters revolve around ethics as expounded by Jesus and Paul and is surprisingly, one of the better chapters in the book as they are a side bar to the main crux of the argument. Barclay presciently predicts that Christians need to examine issues regarding social condition and race in the coming years. The author also takes on what he calls "situational ethics" or what is known in many quarters, as relativism. While not entirely convincing, early church history is covered admirably well in how the church "civilized" Roman and Greek culture. :star2:
