Publisher's Description

This comprehensive anthology of primary documents and materials explores the evolution and study of Christian ethical principles. It may be used independently, or alongside the accompanying textbook, Introducing Christian Ethics, for a complete overview of the field.
  • Represents the entire canon of Christian ethics, including first-hand accounts from major figures in the theological and ecclesial tradition
  • Introduces foundational figures such as Augustine, Aquinas, and Luther; contemporary theorists including Jűrgen Moltmann, Stanley Hauerwas, and Wendell Berry; in addition to work by work by non-theoretical figures, such as Ghandi and Martin Luther King
  • Features useful introductory material that demonstrates the significance of each extract and how they relate to each other
  • May be used independently or together with the accompanying textbook, Introducing Christian Ethics; both books share the same structure and are cross-referenced for ease of use

Editorial Reviews

"Two Anglican theologians, Samuel Wells and Ben Quash, have written an excellent textbook introducing ecumenical Christian ethics. . . This book is a gift for an instructor trying to write a syllabus, and a student who mastered it would be ready for further steps in academia." (Theology, 1 November 2011)

"The success of this publication and of the ecclesial ethics movement from which it comes is significant." (Regent's Reviews, 1 October 2010)
