Description: Adopting a unique approach among introductions to Christian ethics, Kyle Fedler's Exploring Christian Ethics guides students through the moral decision-making process by providing foundational material in both ethical theory and biblical ethics. In part one, Fedler introduces readers to the discipline of ethics, exploring perennial issues from the classical tradition such as relativism, utilitarianism, character, deontology, and virtue from a Christian perspective. In part two, he explores the various ways Scripture can be used responsibly in Christian ethics, particularly discussing whether the Bible should be used as a book of rules. Finally, in part three, he presents and analyzes the sections of Scripture that have been most influential in Christian morality and ethics: Creation and the Fall, the Mosaic Covenant, the Prophets, the teachings of Jesus, the life of Jesus, writings of the Johannine community, and the letters of Paul. Ideal for undergraduate courses, Exploring Christian Ethics is informed by solid scholarship and accessibly and engagingly written.
