Nonevangelicals will gain great insight and some surprises from Evangelical Ethics - if they think of evangelical Christians as the conservative white culture-warriors of the Christian right. To the contrary, Gushee and Sharp present us with powerful voices, going back to the nineteenth century, who espouse progressive cultural reform and social activism on behalf of the gospel. These include Baptist, Anabaptist, Mennonite, Wesleyan, black, and even feminist stances. This book does more than advance evangelical history; it surfaces an important strand of American social ethics, familiarity with which is essential to an informed and effective Christian politics today.
-Lisa Sowle Cahill,
J. Donald Monan Professor of Theology, Boston College

Focusing on the reemergence of an evangelical social conscience in the United States since World War II, this Reader will serve as a vital reference point for naming and framing how this fissiparous and influential part of the American religious landscape has thought about the proper ordering of social and political relations. For the growing body of evangelicals committed to 'making a difference' in the world, this text is a key resource for understanding their own intellectual inheritance. For external observers, the book will dispel often unexamined assumptions about all evangelicals having atavistic, theocratic tendencies.
-Luke Bretherton,
Professor of Theological Ethics and Senior Fellow, Kenan Institute for Ethics, Duke Divinity School, Duke University

Evangelical Ethics: A Reader offers an important window into the breadth and variety of evangelical voices speaking on a number of issues. For those who may think evangelicals are narrow and parochial in moral emphases, the chapters in this volume will be a delightful surprise. The contributors open up our moral horizons by addressing a variety of social ethical issues, such as race, nationalism, poverty, social justice, and immigration, informed by ways of reading Scripture, and engaging in theological reflection, with important implications for social ethical engagement for all Christians. This volume is a welcomed addition to the Library of Theological Ethics.
-Wyndy Corbin Reuschling,
Professor of Ethics and Theology, Ashland Theological Seminary
