Issues of Life and Death such as abortion, assisted suicide, capital punishment and others are among the most contentious in many societies. Whose rights are protected? How do these rights and protections change over time and who makes those decisions? Based on the author’s award-winning and hugely popular undergraduate course at the University of Texas, this book explores these questions and the fundamentally sociological processes which underlie the quest for morality and justice in human societies. The Author’s goal is not to advocate any particular moral "high ground" but to shed light on the social movements and social processes which are at the root of these seemingly personal moral questions. Under 200 printed pages, this slim paperback is priced and sized to be easily assigned in a variety of undergraduate courses that touch on the social bases underlying these contested and contentious issues.

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.
