In "The Christian Moral Life: Practices of Piety," Timothy Sedgwick provides the reader with historical practices of the Christian faith such as hospitality, worship and table fellowship in language that is easy to understand. Basic principles of Christian Ethics are presented in this same manner. He accomplishes this by using not only historical information on early Christian communities, but also by relating issues and ideas to his own life. As he is an Episcopalian, the book does have an Anglican bias, but its basic ideas and principles are adaptable to virtually any Christian denomination. For an intriguing, understandable discussion of Christian Ethics and Christain practices, I highly recommend Sedgwick's "The Christian Moral Life: Practices of Piety."

Another EfM Year 4 book and I'm somewhat conflicted by it. Definitely written from an Anglican perspective; OKAY, I'm Episcopalian and am not offended by his agenda. A lot of the author's thoughts seem valid to a point and even beyond, and I'm okay with that also. His consistent metaphor of "hospitality"; however, gives me pause. As someone to whom words are very important, I have a hard time translating this idea into my reality or else it seems to me that "hospitality" is too weak a term to describe the interactions he's referencing. But, as one who has spent his life in the "Hospitality Industry" perhaps a personal bias regarding the word is getting in my way. There is a lot of valid thought here, much material for consideration and exploration and it's well worth the time spent in reading and study. My only wish is a better developed concept of definition.

I haven't finished reading it yet, but as an Episcopalian, I'd highly recommend it for the background it gives on the development of this branch of the Christian faith, and how we view our moral responsibility as outlined in the Baptismal Covenant.
