Summary

At different times in history, churches have changed their understanding of how biblical commandments should be interpreted and applied. 'According to the Scriptures?' traces the history of the use of the Bible from New Testament invocations of the Old Testament to today. The book opens by outlining the history of how the Bible has been used to answer social, moral and political questions. It goes on to examine a range of case studies - sexual relationships, life issues, attitudes to authority, and the charging of interest - to assess how the Bible can illuminate contemporary concerns.
