What does it take to follow and not merely admire Jesus? How do religious affections reshape the practice of Christian values like love, peace, justice, and compassion? How can they possess both universal truth and local meaning? What role can they play in public life? In Fidelity of Heart Gilman answers these questions, while showing, in an innovative and provocative approach, how Christians can practice these values in ways continuous with the life of Jesus.

This carefully written book explores the nature of fidelity and virtue in the Christian life. Gilman seeks to explore how moral truth can be both universal and meaningful to a particular community. * James Woodward, Reviews in Religion and Theology *
