Excerpt from A System of Christian Ethics: Based on Martensen and Harless
In a certain sense this presentation is an abridgement of Martensen's work, and still it contains far more than that famous production. Martensen is more philosophical than biblical, and in this aspect of the subject, the great work of Harless completes him. What is best and most impor tant in the presentation of Harless, has, therefore, also been incorporated in this treatise. The aim has been not simply to reproduce these great works, but so to use the material, and rewrite it, that what is here written, the au thor believes to be the plain teaching of God's Word with reference to the duties of the Christian here on earth. No pains have been spared to master the contents of this sci ence, and the writer would here especially express his great indebtedness to the works of Frank, Dorner, Wuttke, Schmid, Sartorius, and Vilmar.
