From the Back Cover
Comprehensive and thought-provoking, this introduction to the study of Christian ethics introduces the field of ethics in general, surveys the variety of Christian approaches to the study of ethics, describes the author's own methods for making ethical decisions, explores some of the ethical issues -- both personal and social -- with which modern men and women must deal, and emphasizes a continuing respect for scripture, tradition, and the Christian community as resources. Emphasizes Christian ethics that reflect the theology -- specifically -- of Protestant Christianity, but acknowledges as viable options a number of other systems -- including, for example, Jewish ethics, contemporary Roman Catholic moral theology, and African-American and Feminist expressions of the ethic of Liberation Theology. Focuses on the responsibility of the individual in moral decision-making and action, and emphasizes value more than duty in the making of moral decisions. Combines theological, philosophical, historical, and sociological perspectives in examining moral issues. Explores Biblical ethics; faith working through love; human sexuality and the marriage relationship; biomedical ethics; ethnicity; the status of women; citizenship in a democracy; punishment for crime; war and the quest for peace; work, property, and community; and ecology and moral responsibility. For anyone interested in Christian Ethics. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Had to buy it for a class, but I will dispose of it when class is finished. Completely useless drivel.
The only positive aspect of this book is that it helped me to think through some issues on a deeper level. Much of the time I found myself in strong disagreement with his position, and his interpretation of Scripture and it's application to moral issues of our time.
This is so well written that I use the book for meditation topics.
He bases some of his premises on new scientific evidence, yet doesn't cite any! Why? Because there is no valid scientific evidence that supports his beliefs. He does however, relate his own un-scientic, un-documented findings! Is this a textbook with facts? Absolutely not! It is one mans opinion, based on his liberal theology and secularism. It's going in the trash!
