Paperback
Asserts that the theology of the Wesleyan tradition is best understood not as philosophical and applied ethics, but as Moral Theology stemming from the virtue tradition, particularly the work of Thomas Aquinas. Because we have squeezed the Wesleyan tradition in the academic discipline of philosophical and applied ethics, we have distorted the tradition. This distortion has led us into the current ethical impasse, particularly with regard to money, war and peace, homosexuality, and technology.

- Publisher Stephen Long asserts that the theology of the Wesleyan tradition is best understood not as philosophical & applied ethics, but as moral theology stemming from the virtue tradition, particularly the work of Thomas Aquinas.

- Publisher The public theology of the Wesleyan tradition is best understood as moral theology rather than as philosophical and applied ethics. Long asserts that the ethical nature of the Wesleyan tradition can be best understood using the frame of moral theology stemming from the virtue tradition, particularly the work of Thomas Aquinas. This recognizes that the gathering of the faithful for the purpose of seeking holinessis the public voice of the church. Because we squeezed the Wesleyan tradition in the academic discipline of philosophical and applied ethics, we distorted our tradition. This distortion led us into our current ethical impasse, particularly with money, war and peace, homosexuality, and technology.
