Applied Christian Ethics addresses selected themes in Christian social ethics. The book is divided in three parts. In the first section, "Foundation," several contributors reveal their Christian realist roots and discuss the prophetic origins and multifarious agenda of social ethics. Thus, the names of Reinhold Niebuhr and Paul Tillich come up frequently. In the second section, "Economics and Justice," the focus turns to the different levels at which economics has significance for social justice. These chapters discuss fair housing at the local level, the dialogue between Christians and Native Americans over property rights at the regional and national levels, and trade and international organization. In the third and final section, "Politics, War, and Peacemaking," the content ranges from the existential experience of a soldier to that of a veteran of civil rights activism, from theorizing about peacemaking to commenting on the use of drones.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Here is a wonderful collection of essays, many by established scholars skillfully addressing both theory and practice, or foundational and applied topics, in Christian social ethics. Furthermore, this volume is a fine tribute to Ronald H. Stone, who served as an inspiration for these appreciative yet critical contributions by colleagues and students from his more than four decades of service to church and society. Applied Christian Ethics: Foundations, Economic Justice, and Politics is a valuable resource for scholars and others interested in current trends and future trajectories in twenty-first century Christian social ethics. -- Tobias Winright, Hubert Mader Chair of Health Care Ethics, Saint Louis University
Erudite and accessible, Applied Christian Ethics explores various dimensions of Ron Stone's writings. The essays constructively address theological, ethical, economic, and political questions raised by Stone, cogently engage his interlocutors (principally Niebuhr and Tillich), and creatively apply his ideas to contemporary moral problems. -- Jonathan Rothchild, Loyola Marymount University
