A few years ago, thefirst distinction that ethicists drew was the line between Christian ethics andphilosophical ethics. However, in our global context, Christian ethicists must now, in addition, compare and contrast various ethics. Christian ethics has becomeincreasingly multivocal not only because of a plurality of faiths but also becauseof a plurality of Christianities. Beginning with five keyideas about God 's relationship to humanity and history, Dr. Lovin shows how thesework together to shape the Christian stance. In the first three chapters, he thenshows how those ideas took shape in relation to other ways of thinking about ethicsin the world of early Christianity and identifies four major variations: Synergy, Integrity, Realism, and Liberation. The six remaining chapters cover historical andcontemporary developments in the three ways of thinking about moral choices: teleology, deontology, and areteology. Test cases are also included. The purpose of the book is to indicate what is possible in Christianethics, rather than to prescribe one way that it ought to be done. The aim is not toget readers to choose one among the Christian possibilities and use it exclusively, but use this introduction as a resource to arrive at their own ways of thinkingabout moral problems in order to act with integrity.
