An ethical analysis of the moral writings of the late Edward John Carnell, former president and professor of ethics and philosophy of religion at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California. Carnell is viewed as one of a handful of mid-twentieth century evangelicals who sparked a renaissance of the evangelical concern for both individual salvation and the social order which typified many of the nineteenth century American revivalists. Carnell synthesized nineteenth century American revivalism, Kierkegaardianism and Niebuhrianism, while holding to the ethical authority of the Bible and the life of Jesus Christ.

What People are Saying About This

Vernon Grounds

Cornell made a significant impact on the bourgeoning evangelical movement in the United States at mid-century. This excellent study shows that as the century moves towards its close his contribution has lost none of its relevance.

Ronald Nash

...a clear and well-written discussion of the moral thought of a major twentieth-century evangelical theologian. Even more, it serves as a starting point from which others who share this perspective can reflect about moral philosophy.
