Endorsements

“In our country, James M. Gustafson has influenced the development of ecumenical Christian ethics in our day more than any other person. In this classic work he employs his incomparable analytical and critical skills to illuminate how different significant authors have used Jesus Christ to respond to the three fundamental issues of ethics—the good, the moral self, and the criteria for moral judgment and action. The last chapter develops his own constructive statement.” — Charles Curran, Scurlock University Professor of Human Values, Southern Methodist University
