Faith and Freedom: Christian Ethics in a Pluralist Culture
David Neville, Philip Matthews
ATF Press, 2003 - Religion - 229 pages
Australian Christians, like Christians in many socities, live in a pluralistic culture. This makes the issues of faith, freedom and their interelationship all the more critical. In a pluralist context, Christian faith and freedom must be expressed and embodied in a coherent rather than discordant way. The authors of these reflections on key ethical concerns represent the Anabaptist, Anglican, Baptist, Lutheran, Methodist, Presbyterian, Roman Catholic and Uniting Church traditions, yet there is a hamrony within this plurality of theological and ecclesiological voices. Contributors include: John Howard Yoder, Charles Birch, Stanley Hauerwas, and Thorwald Lorenzen.
