Written in the warm and witty style we've come to expect from Lewis Smedes, Choices is a book of guidelines on making solid decisions that go beyond the needs of the moment to an underlying, consistent pattern of moral values.

Mere morality : what God expects from ordinary people by Lewis B Smedes( Book )

23 editions published between 1983 and 1996 in 4 languages and held by 819 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The focus of Smedes's study is the commandments--in particular those five of the Ten Commandments which call us to respect other persons: "Honor your father and mother"; "You shall not kill"; "You shall not commit adultery"; "You shall not steal"; "You shall not bear false witness." Each of these commandments pinpoints the moral nucleus of one sector of life in community--family, marriage, property, communication, and the preservation of life itself. Using these commandments as a basis, Smedes asks three questions: What does God command us to do? Why does he command this? And how can we obey this in the ambiguities and conflicts of real life?--From publisher's description

In this fearful and cynical age, when doom-and-gloomers forecast catastrophe and fearmongers try to get us to hedge our bets on the future with insurance policies and safety nets, we need to rediscover real hope.
