God & Morality in Christian Traditions

Christianity presumes morality is connected in important ways to God.

God & Morality in Christian Traditions explores a wide range of philosophical issues related to that connection, including the metaphysical foundations of morality, the Fall and its implications, and how faith can affect one’s ability to discern obligations. Also included is a robust treatment of how vice and virtue shape one’s ethical life, as well as a timely discussion of how people―both Christians and non-Christians―can address deep moral disagreement in a pluralistic society. Drawing on Catholic, Protestant, and free church traditions, this volume highlights perspectives drawn from the natural law tradition, divine command theory, and virtue ethics, among other theoretical frameworks. Along the way, the authors provide salient insights on metaethics, moral epistemology, character development, and applied ethics. Scholars and students in Christian ethics, philosophy, and theology will benefit from this carefully edited and rigorously argued collection of essays.
