Product Description

This book is a contemporary introduction to Christian ethics in the Roman Catholic tradition. It sets the scene for Christian ethics within contemporary pluralist societies, considering the key philosophical theories of ethics and the meaning and value of natural law in terms of the meaningfulness of cross-cultural ethical dialogue. Christian ethics is presented as a distinctive contribution to a universally human task, grounded in the love of God revealed in Christ and deriving its distinct contours and motivation from the shape of Christian revelation. After considering these foundational issues, this book shapes its discussion of Christian ethics around three key questions: What sort of person should I be?, a question that provokes a study of freedom, responsibility and conscience; What is the good?, focusing on the goodness of creation, especially the unique value of human dignity; What should I do?, leading to a discussion of the contemporary meaning of moral norms.
