A Textbook of Christian Ethics (4th Edition)
Robin Gill's A Textbook of Christian Ethics continues to be popular with students and lecturers - it is difficult to find another textbook in the field that combines primary texts with extensive analysis and commentary. This 4th edition has been extensively revised and it incorporates up-to-date developments in the field of Christian ethics. Gill retains all the popular features of the previous editions, including its layout and structure. This new edition focuses more strongly throughout on current debates, which are expanded on a variety of topics, such as global Christianity, global economics, euthanasia and global justice or the environment. Gill uses modern texts by William Schweiker, Mark Allman, and Rowan Williams, alongside the classical texts from Augustine, Aquinas and Luther. Gill analyses these texts in a systematic and balanced way, examining differing ethical positions and arguments together with the social and historical factors which shaped them.
