^^'Malcolm Brown provides a clear intellectual groundwork for working in contemporary Christian ethics, which takes in all the main theories and theorists presently influential in the field. More than this, he provides sharp and stimulating discussions of many of the issues that presently do, or should, preoccupy Christians, such as just war, human rights, the market and sexuality.'
^^Professor Stephen Pattison, University of Birmingham
^^'This is a riveting read. It provides the best way to get up to date with the contemporary debates in Christian ethics. Malcolm Brown is fair, thoughtful and judicious. If you only have time to read one book on Christian ethics this year, this is the one to pick.'
^^Professor Ian Markham, Virginia Theological Seminary^
The book draws on the author s teaching of ethics at undergraduate and postgraduate level for the Cambridge Theological Federation since 2000. Its purpose is to introduce the reader to questions in Christian ethics through a careful examination of the fundamental meta-ethical questions posed by the state we re in, whether understood as a new phase of modernity or as postmodernity. Brown draws on sources and authors from a variety of Christian traditions, and from Britain, the USA and Europe. The book will be of use, not only to university departments and denominational and ecumenical teaching institutions but also as a more general exposition of the current state of ethical thinking in the Christian churches.
