Do FL carry a resource comparable to Kaiser' Toward Old Testament Ethics?

Here’s a similar one, though I’d prefer to own Kaiser’s volume, since it’s outlined better.  This one looks good, though:

Looks interesting. Just reading some reviews and the Preview in Logos.

What do u think of this?

Totally agree on the Kaiser book. I've got the hard copy, but sure be nice to have it in Logos.

I know that this isn't your question, but when taking an Ethics course at seminary, I had to read a Treatise on Good Works by Luther.  It's a short book (around 100 pages or so) where he discusses the Ten Commandments.  I really enjoyed the book.

Thanks Ronald,

Hadn't even considered Luthers' works. Good call. I'll have to peruse it.

Calvin's discussion of the Ten Commandments in the Institutes is also worth checking out, as is John Frame's commentary on them in The Doctrine of the Christian Life. For a fuller discussion of OT Ethics, have you read Chris Wright's Old Testament Ethics for the People of God? Wright was our set text for OT Ethics. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like it is available in Logos yet.

I don't have experience with any of the books mentioned here but the books I do have you might find useful are: Old Testament Theology volume 3 by Goldingay and Copan's books: Is God a moral monster and did God really command genocide
