All of the moral judgments which peaceful nations pass upon the nations which threaten the peace, principally Japan, Germany, and Italy, are, significantly, the judgments of secure and powerful nations against those less secure and more tardy in initiating their imperial enterprises. Morality is inordinately difficult to define exactly. The ultimate measurement of ministry is faithfulness to God. Mahwah: Paulist, 1995. * This second edition of the book, completely revised provides a very good overview of the different kinds of ethics that people presume to have found in scripture and the efforts that they have made to apply this to the whole of ethics.
