    Your daughter asks if she can wear a tuxedo to the prom. How should you answer her? A thief breaks into your home at night. Can you protect your family to the point of killing the thief? A politician campaigning for your vote has no regard for Christ's gospel. Can you vote for him? Crime is rampant and mounting. How exactly does a society confront it?
    Do you know God's particular will for these situations? The general guidance offered from many pulpits and the specific guidance offered from many talk shows should not satisfy those committed to taking every thought captive to Christ (see 2 Cor 10:5). In moral dilemmas, God's general guidance or the ""wisdom"" of men will not do. We need God's voice, and we need it particularly. The Will of God: Moral and Political Guidance from Calvin's Commentaries on the Mosaic Law overcomes these drawbacks of authorized generalities or unauthorized specifics. It comprehensively yet succinctly expresses God's entire moral will by:
    o giving specific, not general, ethical direction
    o closely tying direction to God's commandments, avoiding the ""ingenuities"" of men
    o looking to the interpretations of a trusted theologian, John Calvin
    o summarizing Calvin's interpretations in bullet points for rapid learning
    In a word, The Will of God offers an ethical gourmet meal at a fast food pace.
    The book especially aims for the biblical reformation of politics. No other sector calls for moral reform like the political sector, and if there is any weak area in contemporary Christian teaching it is in political ethics. Christian teachers have simply baptized current non-Christian theories. The Will of God presents a biblical political theory that does not annul one of the least of God's commandments (see Matt 5:19).

    ""The law of God, among other things, describes what love should actually look like in complicated situations. Alex Soto is to be commended for his labor in gathering together in one place the wisdom of Calvin's reflections on the law of God. This book looks to be a quite helpful pastoral resource.""

    ""Alex Soto's book is . . . a reference guide to the laws of Moses and a book for an 'expedited ethics education'. . . First, it defends the . . . authority of Biblical law . . . Second, it brilliantly refutes natural law theory. And third, it shows that John Calvin took Biblical law . . . seriously as authoritative for human society and civil government.""
    --Joe Morecraft III
