From the Back Cover:

This comprehensive textbook offers an unparalleled introduction to the study of Christian ethics, mapping and exploring all the major ethical approaches and offering thoughtful insights into the complex moral challenges facing people today.

Written by two well-known theologians, the book encompasses Christian ethics in its entirety, but also offers a new way of viewing this subject. Wells and Quash approach it from three perspectives: universal (ethics for anyone); subversive (ethics for the excluded); and ecclesial (ethics for the church). In doing so, they are able to highlight the sharp distinctions between ethical approaches that are sometimes perceived as antagonistic, whilst providing a balance between description, analysis, and critique. They also show how ecclesial ethics is respectful of – and indeed, often profoundly indebted to – other approaches to ethics.

This comprehensive and systematic study of Christian ethical principles may be used independently, or alongside a companion volume of readings, Christian Ethics: An Introductory Reader.
