I'm mentoring a man into full time ministry for my church and I wanted to make sure he was rooted and grounded in Christian ethics. I'm using the book and it's lessons as a primer for understanding the need for a honest, sincere, and educated Christian world-view. It's a very good book and creates much discussion. I highly recommend it!

Good introduction to Christian ethics. Reviews classic models of ethics from Christian and non-Christian traditions and analyzes how they are applied and altered for use by Christians in the Catholic, protestant and evangelical communities, historically and currently. The author suggests Christian ethics will sometimes work very much like various classical models and other times quite differently because of theological commitments, which he classifies by one of several "stances." The author does not choose a stance or apply any methods to current social issues, though he does create hypotheticals to allow students to practice use of key models. Those from Christian traditions which are committed to an authoritative approach to scripture, will find the lack of any specific application of Bible texts deficient, but the book does serve to introduce the big, historical ideas concisely and fairly.

This is a reasonably balanced view of ethical approaches. It certainly addresses Christian Ethics but within the context of non-Christian ethics and does not try to make a case that Christian ethics should be the only ethics we study and use. I would have liked to seen more attention paid to dealing with intentionally unethical members of a group or society, but maybe that is for a more advanced treatment.
