Publisher's Description

What makes someone a Christian?
 
The way of life we call Christian is lived in relationships to others. Christian faith, understood as practical piety, calls for a life opened to the world at large, concerned for the "stranger" as well as for the neighbor.
 
This exploration of morality by Timothy Sedgwick emphasizes that the Christian life is grounded in the experience and worship of God. His work develops Christian ethics as "sacramental ethics"—an ethic that has at its center a deepening encounter with God.
 
Written in an accessible style, this book provides teachers, pastors, counselors, and general readers with an ideal introduction to Christian ethics. It renews the topic by showing that faithful moral living is achieved through the daily practices of grace and godliness. First exploring the foundations of Christian ethics as seen by both Catholics and Protestants, and then developing a constructive view of morality as a way of life, Sedgwick shows that effective piety is built on spiritual disciplines that deepen our experience of God: prayer, worship, self examination, simplicity, and acts of hospitality.
