9780830818556: Strange Virtues: Ethics in a Multicultural World

Theologian and veteran missionary Bernard Adeney addresses in-depth what may be the stickiest crosscultural communication problem of our day: differing approaches to morality. In this comprehensive treatment, he considers ethics across cultures, addresses the ethical import of other religions and gender relations, explores how the Bible and culture interact to produce ethical stances, and includes particular case studies. Strange Virtues will benefit not only missionaries, ethicists and students, but all Christians who want to better understand their neighbors here at home.

From the Back Cover:

Strange Virtues is one of the first books to comprehensively consider ethics across cultures, addressing the ethical import of other religions and gender relations, exploring how the Bible and culture interact to produce ethical stances, and examining such particular case studies as bribery. It will be invaluable not only for missionaries, ethicists and students, but for all Christians who want to better understand neighbors right here at home.

About the Author:

Bernard T. Adeney has taught theology and ethics at New College Berkeley and currently teaches at Universitas Kristen Satya Wacana in Java, Indonesia. He has been highly involved in evangelical and ecumenical endeavors and has served as coconvener of the American Academy of Religion's Group on Religion, Peace and War.
