Product Description

This comprehensive textbook offers an unparalleled introduction to the study of Christian Ethics, mapping and exploring all the major ethical approaches, and offering thoughtful insights into the complex moral challenges facing people today.

Introducing Christian Ethics redefines the field of Christian ethics along three strands: universal (ethics for anyone), subversive (ethics for the excluded), and ecclesial (ethics for the church). This text also:
  • Encompasses Christian ethics in its entirety, offering students a substantial overview by re-mapping the field and exploring the differences in various ethical approaches
  • Provides a successful balance between description, analysis, and critique
  • Reveals how ecclesial ethics is respectful of, and indeed, often profoundly indebted to, other approaches to ethics
This systematic study may be used independently or used alongside a companion volume, Christian Ethics: An Introductory Reader, which further illustrates and amplifies the diversity of material and arguments explored here.

Endorsements

This book presents a thoughtful, trenchantly logical and interesting comparison of approaches that is both serious and compelling. It will be of particular interest for those looking to get the big picture of Christian ethics and an understanding of the rival viewpoints both inside and outside Christianity.
-John Berkman,
University of Toronto

Wells and Quash's typology of ethics (universal, subversive, and ecclesial) is a stroke of genius and a genuine contribution to the field.
-Dan Bell,
Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary

Wells and Quash have put together a wonderfully comprehensive survey of Christian ethics while at the same time offering a distinctive and fresh perspective...With the array of primary texts and judicious and very well informed commentary that the two volumes represent, they have succeeded in constructing an extremely valuable resource for teachers and students of Christian ethics.
-Michael S. Northcott,
University of Edinburgh

This book offers for the beginning student a fine exposition of the main thinkers, comprehensive theories and currently pressing issues that shape this field.
-Dr Susan F. Parsons,
St Bede's Hall, Oxford
