What is “goodness”?
Scripture tells much about the individual things that are good; but it also gives a clear concept of the idea “goodness.” Goodness is an aspect of reality in relation to individual persons.
These selections will help Christians answer the following questions:
- “What is valuable?”
- “What should I pursue?”
- “Why should I pursue it?”
- “What should my motivation be?”
These passages are the answer. They give a full perspective on the values and motivations promoted by Scripture. This collection culminates several years of careful study. I’ve aimed to provide every passage that bears on the above questions.
I am especially interested in what Scripture has to say about the role of self-interest and self-preservation in morality. I have worked to leave no stone unturned. May this collection serve as a foundation for forming a correct concept of the good. So may it lead to the spiritual and intellectual growth that comes from a study of the depths of God’s Word.
