Many people in South Africa are concerned with ethical matters - both as an academic pursuit and by religious conviction. The topics discussed in this publication are of the utmost importance to South Africans as they search for a new identity in a so-called secular community. A reader for academics and lay-people alike, this study empowers one to make up ones own mind with regard to ethical issues and related Biblical guidelines.
