Product Description

The ability to judge good from bad, right from wrong, is a uniquely human characteristic. However, given the complexity of life, it is often difficult to discern which choice to make, where our responsibilities lie, or what the consequences of an action (or of a non-action) will be.

In The Moral Disciple: An Introduction to Christian Ethics Kent Van Til surveys the skills and dispositions that we need to address moral issues responsibly. This basic introduction to Christian ethics--the systematic evaluation of morality--highlights the centrality of Christ and the Christian faith in moral formation, and it offers an ethical framework to guide Christians as they engage a host of moral dilemmas, including those surrounding wealth, sexuality, and the end of life. Using easy-to-read prose and defining terms carefully, Van Til provides an accessible introduction to this crucial and practical subject.

Endorsements

This gem of a volume expertly introduces the rich subject matter of Christian ethics in a lucid and appealing format. Kent Van Til's scholarly knowledge, pedagogical skill, and lively faith make this text a joy to read. Highly recommended!
-Christine Firer Hinze,
Fordham University

Van Til's primer on Christian ethics introduces students not only to the vocabulary of Christian ethics but also to a broader range of issues surrounding moral agency, moral norms, and moral consequences - and offers a variety of ways of dealing with those issues. No less importantly, The Moral Disciple attends to Scripture and invites readers to a richer practice of 'moral discipleship.' "
-Allen Verhey,
Duke Divinity School

With wonderfully readable sentences and vivid illustrations, Van Til offers clear, useful, and comprehensive conceptual distinctions and applies concepts to familiar contemporary issues and ideas, inviting response and discussion. Anyone seeking an introduction to Christian ethics will be grateful for this brief volume.
-Harlan Beckley,
Washington and Lee University

A gem of a textbook that shows how exciting ethics is and how it relates to economics, politics, the arts, and hard science.
-Daniel C. Maguire,
Marquette University

I wish I had been able to assign this fine book by Kent Van Til to my ethics classes when I first started teaching college students over four decades ago...Reading this book has made me more sensitive to the need for more moral honesty in my own soul!
-Richard J. Mouw,
Fuller Theological Seminary
