With regard to OT ethics, the volumes by Birch (1991), Otto (1994), and Rodd (2001) cover the subject with commendable detail. John Barton has written extensively on the subject, and many of his articles have now been collected together in a single volume (2003). C. J. H. Wright, writing from a broadly conservative perspective, has also made a valuable contribution to this area of research (1983, 1995, 2004). Shorter studies worth consulting include those by McKeating (1979), P. R. Davies (1995), Rogerson (2000, 2001, 2004), and the articles in the volume edited by Knight (1995a).
There are many excellent expositions of the ethical teaching of the NT that provide a good foundation for understanding the biblical material. Mention may be made in particular of the volumes by Schnackenburg (1965), Schrage (1988), Lohse (1991), Marxsen (1993), McDonald (1993, 1998), Hays (1996a), and Matera (1996). For excellent discussions of Paul's ethical teaching, readers should consult Furnish (1968) and Sampley (1991), and several important articles on Paul's ethics have been collected in Rosner (1995). Those interested in hermeneutical issues should consult Birch and Rasmussen (1976), Longenecker (1984), and Ogletree (1984), and for further discussion of the importance of an ethical critique of Scripture, see E. W. Davies (2003).
