Christian Ethics: The Basics sets out clearly and critically the different ways that Augustine, Aquinas and Luther continue to shape ethics today within and across Christian denominations. It assumes no previous knowledge of the subject and can be read by religious believers and non-believers alike. Readers are introduced to Christian ethics from the ground up before being invited to consider some of the most controversial but important questions facing people across the world today.

Topics addressed include:

    • Social justice

    • War and peace

    • Migration/immigration

    • Climate change

    • Euthanasia

    • Same-sex marriage

    • Religiously-inspired violence

    • Biotechnology

    • Abrahamic ethics

    Concise, readable and authoritative, this is the ideal primer for anyone interested in the study of religious ethics and Christianity.

    Index

    In Christian Ethics: The Basics Robin Gill provides an excellent overview and analysis of the field of Christian ethics. Key representatives of both classical and contemporary arguments are carefully evaluated with an eye toward their significance today, and each chapter ends with helpful resources for further study. This slender volume is an inviting and accessible exploration of Christian ethics.

    Robin Gill's "basic" book masterfully unfolds Christian ethics for a new generation, anchoring the field to its roots in the Christian tradition while also illuminating how many of the long-standing questions are evolving and taking new forms in the contemporary world. This is an accessible and inspiring book about living into a complicated future with the diverse resources of the tradition in hand. In short, it is one of the very best introductions to Christian ethics I have read in years.

Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Ein Kopierschutz bzw. Digital Rights Management wird bei diesem E-Book nicht eingesetzt.
