Midwest Book Review, October, 2008

What Would Jesus Do? The line written on many a wristband and T-shirt, and the calling many Christians follow. Primary Source Readings in Christian Morality is a collection of writings from many of the great Christian writers of the world who speak out on morality. The words within should prove inspired and inspiring to religious readers, giving Primary Source Readings in Christian Morality a high recommendation.
