Ben Quash is Professor of Christianity and the Arts atKing’s College London. He is the author of Theology andthe Drama of History (2005), and is former Reviews Editor ofthe international journal Studies in Christian Ethics.
"The success of this publication and of the ecclesial ethicsmovement from which it comes is significant." (Regent's Reviews, 1October 2010)
"Every decade or so, it pays to be introduced to Christianethics all over again. A strong introduction can lead us toquestion what we’ve taken for granted, notice whatwe’ve failed to see and connect what has seemed disjointed.This book does all that and more. Wells and Quash present astunningly clear account of Christian ethics; sources; aninsightful typology of approaches – universal, subversive,and ecclesial; and an irenic display of diverse responses topolitics and relationships. It’s not a book of answers, butreading it is an apprenticeship in how to ask the right questionsand with whom to seek the answers." (Christian Century, May2010)
"This book presents a thoughtful, trenchantly logical andinteresting comparison of approaches that is both serious andcompelling. It will be of particular interest for those looking toget the big picture of Christian ethics and an understanding of therival viewpoints both inside and outside Christianity."
—John Berkman, University of Toronto
"Wells and Quash’s typology of ethics (universal,subversive, and ecclesial) is a stroke of genius and a genuinecontribution to the field"
— Dan Bell, Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary
"Wells and Quash have put together a wonderfully comprehensivesurvey of Christian ethics while at the same time offering adistinctive and fresh perspective ... With the array of primarytexts and judicious and very well informed commentary that the twovolumes represent, they have succeeded in constructing an extremelyvaluable resource for teachers and students of Christianethics."
—Michael S. Northcott, University of Edinburgh(ofIntroducing Christian Ethics and Christian Ethics: AnIntroductory Reader)
"This book offers for the beginning studenta fine exposition ofthe main thinkers, comprehensive theories and currently pressingissues that shape this field."
—Dr Susan F. Parsons, Margaret Beaufort Institute ofTheology, Cambridge
