Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Wesley Seminary professors Wogaman and Strong have fashioned a useful tool for the study of the development and diversity of Christian ethics. This long-overdue sourcebook contains primary readings on Christian ethics from early Christianity to the 20th century. Writings as diverse as Clement of Alexandria's "Somata," Hildegard of Bingen's "Visions," Sojourner Truth's "Ain't I a Woman," and James Cone's "A Black Theology of Liberation" indicate the huge range of ethics in theory and practice. An essential purchase for seminary libraries and a recommended purchase for most public libraries.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Orion Pax on December 21, 2008
Format: Paperback
This is a fine compilation of primary sources that provides a good picture of the development of Christian ethics from the birth of the church up through today. Obviously, covering 2000 years in 400 pages means Wogaman & Strong could only include selections of ethical writings from each figure, but this allows them to provide a diverse sampling from each time period from church history. This is a solid one volume historical sourcebook for Christian ethics.

(Note the two-star review below still commends it as great study resource. They just found it drier than expected.)

Yes, the book is good for class, but I received the book promptly and in an efficient manner. This is so great because this was the third time I ordered the book and the semester had already started!
