Christian understanding of ethics, beginning with basic Christian convictions about the reality of God and human redemption, goes on weaving these convictions into the fabric of moral concerns that are widely shared in contemporary society. The book covers the problems that arise when Christians try to act on or enforce their convictions in a pluralistic society, and recognizes the variety of theological and moral beliefs that are held within the Christian community, as well as in the wider society.
This excellent survey of Christian ethics treats comprehensively major thinkers, movements, and issues from the early church to the present. A broad range of topics are discussed: the biblical and philosophical legacies of Christian ethics, the ethics of early Christianity, medieval Christianity, the Reformation and Enlighten-ment, eighteenth-and nineteenth-century Rationalism and Evangelicism.
