Publisher's Description

This updated survey of Christian ethics addresses major thinkers, movements, and issues from the early church to the present. A broad range of topics is discussed, including the biblical and philosophical legacies of Christian ethics and ethics through the early, medieval, Reformation, Enlightenment, and modern eras. This new edition contains more extensive discussions of ethics in the twentieth century, including Vatican II, ecumenical social ethics, and Orthodox Christian ethics. A new section, "Toward the Third Millennium," looks at the issues we will face in the coming decades, including medical, scientific, and political dilemmas, and issues of terrorism, war, and peace.

Editorial Reviews

"With its new and revised sections, this second edition of Christian Ethics: A Historical Introduction is a magnificent survey of every important era in the rich, and contested, history of Christian ethics. Phil Wogaman draws on a lifetime of study to offer incisive, and nuanced, analyses of the major figures, movements, and issues in the field. Better yet, Wogaman couples his sharp analyses with thoughtful arguments that not only stake out his own ethical positions but invite the rest of us to struggle with unresolved issues and ongoing debates. The result is a magisterial volume that should be required reading for anyone wanting to understand the roots, historical expressions, and future directions of Christian ethics." Michael G. Long, Associate Professor of Religious Studies and Peace and Conflict Studies, Elizabethtown College
