The subject matter of this dissertation is the role of Scripture in theological ethics.

The issue is broached by way of the work of James M. Gustafson, R. Paul Ramsey, and Allen D. Verhey, three representative ethicists on the recent American Protestant scene. The chapter on Gustafson, Ramsey, and Verhey reveal the crucial components of the question, namely, the role of reason, the character of the community, and the place of practice. A sketch of the historical background of the issue and its contemporary context within the American Protestant scene precedes the analysis of the individual authors on the subject in question.

In the final chapter the author presents a theological-ethical critique of the proposals of Gustafson, Ramsey, and Verhey, interwoven throughout with his own proposal. He organizes this final chapter according to the topics of reason, community, and practice.
