Review by James W. Waters forthcoming.


Christian Ethics: The Basics sets out clearly and critically the different ways that Augustine, Aquinas and Luther continue to shape ethics today within and across Christian denominations. It assumes no previous knowledge of the subject and can be read by religious believers and non-believers alike. Readers are introduced to Christian ethics from the ground up before being invited to consider some of the most controversial but important questions facing people across the world today.

Topics addressed include: social justice, war and peace, migration/immigration, climate change, euthanasia, same-sex marriage, religiously inspired violence, biotechnology, Abrahamic ethics.

Concise, readable and authoritative, this is the ideal primer for anyone interested in the study of religious ethics and Christianity.
