Christian Ethics provides a biblical, historical, philosophical and theological guide to the field of Christian ethics. Prominent theologian David S. Cunningham explores the tradition of ‘virtue ethics’ in this creative and lively text, which includes literary and musical references as well as key contemporary theological texts and figures.

Three parts examine:

  • the nature of human action and the people of God as the ‘interpretative community’ within which ethical discourse arises
  • the development of a ‘virtue ethics’ approach, and places this in its Christian context
  • significant issues in contemporary Christian ethics, including the ethics of business and economics, politics, the environment, medicine and sex.

This is the essential text for students of all ethics courses in theology, religious studies and philosophy.
