Previously published by Cengage/Wadsworth, this popular anthology for the study of Christian ethics has been a mainstay of undergraduate courses for nearly thirty years. Shannon and Patricia Jung provide an introduction to contemporary moral issues from decidedly, yet diverse, Christian moral perspectives. The anthology intentionally seeks a range of voices to produce a kind of "point/counterpoint" discussion of the ethical issue. Among the classic issues considered are: sexuality and reproductive rights, prejudice, biomedical ethics, the environment, immigration, terrorism, war, and globalization. New issues include: development ethics, personal finance and consumerism, workplace ethics, health care, and citizenship.
Patricia Beattie Jung is Professor of Christian Ethics and Oubri A. Poppele Professor of Health and Welfare Ministries at Saint Paul School of Theology and has served for many years as coeditor of the Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics. L. Shannon Jung is Franklin and Louise Cole Professor of Town and Country Ministries at Saint Paul School of Theology and has published broadly in religious ethics.
