Journal of Religious Ethics 13 (1):53 - 70 (1985)

This essay approaches Gustafson's work through his two-volume "Ethics from a Theocentric Perspective." It puts questions to Gustafson in four areas of concern in religious ethics: anthropocentrism, christology, revelation-inspiration, and practical ethics. The essay suggests that in Gustafson's "magnum opus", both far more and far less is known about God than is warranted, and it concludes by questioning the truly Christian character of such theocentrism.
