$75.00

Hardback
:Oliver O'Donovan is widely regarded as one of the preeminent Protestant Christian ethicists of our time. His teaching and scholarship have exerted a profound influence on countless moral theologians.

This collection of essays honoring O'Donovan shows how the various contributors -- themselves distinguished scholars -- have developed their own thinking through serious engagement with O'Donovan's work. More than simply assessing his work, this volume builds upon, expands, and even corrects a few lines of an agenda for Christian ethics that O'Donovan has been instrumental in building. As Song and Waters say in their introduction, "To genuinely honor O'Donovan, one cannot remain content with reciting but must risk one's own exposition."

A probing essay by Oliver O'Donovan himself concludes the book.
