The God Who Commands

In this book Richard J. Mouw, one of the foremost thinkers in the field of Christian ethics, develops a constructive theological ethic, employing primarily Calvinist themes. Exploring issues that are at the intersection of philosophical and theological discussions, he sets forth an ethical perspective in which obedience to divine commands occupies a central place.


"Richard Mouw probes, from a Calvinist tradition, the place of obedience to a divine command… Mouw suggests that a Calvinist perspective on moral theology can profit from an openness to some contemporary developments, particularly narrativist ethics, feminist thought and the insights gained from the charismatic movement."
