Product Description

Too often, says Nigel Biggar in Behaving in Public: How To Do Christian Ethics contemporary Christian ethics poses a false dichotomy between either "conservative" theological integrity or "liberal" secular consensus.

Behaving in Public explains both why and how Christians should resist these polarized and often unreasonable and uncharitable options. Informed by a definitive Christian theological vision of moral life, Biggar's succinct argument charts a third way forward and clears space that will allow faithful Christians to turn toward the world with openness and curiosity, and yet maintain their distinctive religious faith and convictions.

Nicholas Wolterstorff

Common sense is usually bland and boring. Nigel Biggar's book Behaving in Public, however, is full of common sense that is anything but bland and boring. That's because Biggar employs his common sense polemically to show what's deficient in one and another position on speaking as a Christian in public, and to point to alternatives. Over and over I found myself saying, 'Yes, of course; he's right.' This is a wonderfully fresh, perceptive, and sensible discussion.

Jean Porter
University of Notre Dame
"How can the church witness effectively in public debates in modern, mostly secular societies, without either losing its integrity or imposing its perspectives on others? In this important new book Nigel Biggar maintains that the integrity of the Christian message should not be confused with distinctiveness. . . . Offers a nuanced yet demanding position on the public role of the church, cutting through unhelpful dichotomies and reminding us that theological seriousness need not be sectarian or intolerant.

Werner G. Jeanrond
University of Glasgow
"Clear in thought, elegant in expression, and generous in dialogue, this book offers a new and convincing approach to Christian ethics. . . . Biggar argues for the integrity of a mature, discriminating, nonmoralizing Christian ethics which is inspired and equipped for critical engagement with the church and the wider public and which cares about the flourishing of both.

Robin W. Lovin
-Southern Methodist University
"Behaving in Public shows people who care about public life how to combine theological integrity and political effectiveness. . . . This is a theology that offers an alternative to today's polarized politics.
