Designed specifically to provide full-orbed instruction in the discipline of Christian ethics, this unique introductory reader surveys the many exciting and timely issues in the field of Christian ethics while simultaneously presenting the fundamentals of ethical theory. From Christ to the World collects the great variety of voices in Christian ethics - biblical, historical, and contemporary; male and female; black and white; Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant - yet also addresses perennial questions of Christian moral thought and some contemporary moral problems. Separate sections within this anthology give serious attention to the multiple sources of Christian ethics, present the basic features of Christian moral theories, and explore the contemporary moral quagmire surrounding human sexuality, medical practices, politics, economic justice, and ecological responsibility. Relevant biblical readings and a series of case studies show students that doing Christian ethics is even more intriguing than reading a book on the subject.
