Essays on Ethics and Politics $10.95 $8.21

Gordon H. Clark
Trade paperback, 221 pages, 1992

Despite the fact that these essays were written over several decades and for various audiences, they present one consistent idea: Without propositional revelation, there is no possibility of ethical knowledge or action. It is God's Word, and God's Word alone, that establishes right and wrong. All attempts to construct an ethics apart from revelation have failed, and Dr. Clark documents the failures.
