Product Description

How can one make the ethical and "right" decision in a deeply ambiguous moral world? This basic introduction to Christian ethics--with attitude--examines the fundamental ethical problematic of moral decision-making in which knowledge will always be unsure, time short, decisions ambiguous, and consequences multiple and unforeseeable. Pluralism and complexity today make personal, sexual, social, medical, business, and political choices "dirty", and ethics needs to be rethought accordingly.
