Editorial Reviews


"Jackson is a first-rate scholar who writes clearly and gracefully. Any summary of his argument in Priority of Love can hardly do justice to the facility with which he handles the controversies on each of his major themes and to his provocative sub-themes."--Michael J. Kerlin, America

From the Inside Flap

"This book is a passionate, learned, and illuminating inquiry into what Christian love means in a world that largely rejects it. It is reminiscent of the best work of the late Paul Ramsey--in its commitment to the priority of charity in ethics, in its sensitive handling of the relationship between love and justice, in the seriousness with which it discusses issues like warfare and abortion, in its intellectual courage, and in the author's determination to think for himself. Reading Jackson always teaches me something new about the tradition he represents. As readers of his first book, Love Disconsoled, will know, the steadiness of his basic convictions does not prevent him from surprising us with novel reasoning and bold stands. Jackson must now be counted among the premier scholars of Christian ethics in his generation."--Jeffrey Stout, Princeton University
