Format: Paperback
This review is for Volumes 1 and 2 of Clark and Rakestraw's "Readings in Christian Ethics." The strength of both volumes is their comprehensive nature. The format is a collection of essays, articles, and chapters from books written by a multitude of Christian thinkers like Alister McGrath, J.I. Packer, Norman Geisler, Donald Bloesch, Gordon Fee, Lewis Smedes, Stanley Hauerwas, Stanley Grenz, J.P. Moreland, Richard Foster, Ronald Sider, Charles Ryrie, and John Piper, among many others. This multiplicity of voices provides many different perspectives and prevents the book from settling on one particular approach or philosophy of Christian ethics.

A primary strength of both volumes is their comprehensive nature. They cover a host of ethical theories and issues and discuss them from multiple positions. The contributors write thoughtfully, almost without exception, which helps to solidify the reality that ethical issues are complex and that knee-jerk, emotional reactions are inadequate for thoughtful Christians.

A minor critique of Volume 1 is simply that it was extremely dense. Though its accessibility varied from author to author, many of the essays were rather baffling to understand. This may be nothing but a reflection of my own intellectual deficiencies, but I found the experience of reading this book to be utterly exhausting, which was disappointing for what seems to be intended as an introduction to the field of Christian ethics. Having waded my way through Volume 1, I learned a lot and was challenged in my own thinking about ethical methodology and issues.

Volume 2 is significantly more accessible than Volume 1, so the experience of reading it was less laborious than its predecessor.

The book was still readable and usable, but the first few chapter are falling out of the book. Shipment was fast. I think they just overlooked it, because the book was not written in or had signs of use.
