This comprehensive textbook redefines the field of Christian Ethics, highlighting distinctions between ethical approaches, and offering thoughtful insights into the complex moral challenges facing people today. Redefines the field of Christian ethics along three strands: universal (ethics for anyone), subversive (ethics for the excluded), and ecclesial (ethics for the church) Offers students substantially more than many texts, most of which focus solely on issues, approaches, or key figures in Christian ethics; this books covers all three, setting them in a framework that explores scripture, philosophy and church history Provides a successful balance between description, critique, and analysis Shows how ecclesial ethics is respectful of, and indeed, often profoundly indebted to, other approaches to ethics Structured so that it can be used alongside a companion volume, Christian Ethics: An Introductory Reader, which further illustrates and amplifies the diversity of material and arguments explored here
