A few years ago, the first distinction that ethicists drew was the line between Christian ethics and philosophical ethics. However, in our global context, Christian ethicists must now, in addition, compare and contrast various ethics. Christian ethics has become increasingly multivocal not only because of a plurality of faiths but also because of a plurality of Christianities. In light of these new realities, this book will introduce Christian ethics. It will lay out history, methods, and basic principles every student must know. The author also will include case studies for further explanation and application.

The ability to judge good from bad, right from wrong, is a uniquely human characteristic. However, given the complexity of life, it is often difficult to discern which choice to make, where our responsibilities lie, or what the consequences of an action (or of a nonaction) will be. In The Moral Disciple Kent Van Til surveys the skills and dispositions that we need to address moral issues responsibly. This basic introduction to Christian ethics the systematic evaluation of morality highlights the centrality of Christ and the Christian faith in moral formation, and it offers an ethical framework to guide Christians as they engage a host of moral dilemmas, including those surrounding wealth, sexuality, and the end of life. Using easy-to-read prose and defining terms carefully, Van Til provides an accessible introduction to this crucial and practical subject.

Friedrich Schleiermacher is commonly regarded as the father of modern liberal theology and the dominant Protestant theologian between the time of John Calvin and that of Karl Barth. Yet until now his comprehensive views on Christian ethics have never been published. Introduction to Christian Ethics makes available for the first time Schleiermacher's most definitive and fully realized views on this topic. Although he was a singularly prolific writer (he left behind him a collection of books, lectures, sermons, and letters that fill thirty volumes), Schleiermacher never himself prepared a manuscript on Christian Ethics for publication. Two previously published editions were based on lecture notes and student transcriptions. Introduction to Christian Ethics is taken from the edition that utilizes the lectures of 1826 and 1827, the lectures that Schleiermacher himself felt most adequately reflected his views on the subject.
