Providing the level one student with all they will need to know to understand their course fully, "SCM Study Guide: Christian Ethics" is full of helpful features to aid memory and learning and pointers for further reading and further study. The book covers the major areas of ethical theory and methodology that are key to any introductory course, including the use of the Bible in Christian ethics, natural law, conscience, various philosophical approaches to ethics and the influence of liberation theologies. In addition, three methodological topics often neglected in textbooks in this area but included here, are Christian ethics and science, Christian ethics and pastoral care and the relationship between Christian ethics and the wider public debates in ethics. The book also covers a wide range of topics in practical Christian ethics, all introduced by case studies, ranging from abortion, euthanasia, human genetic manipulation, health care rationing, divorce and remarriage, homosexuality, capital punishment, just war and "humanitarian intervention" GM crops, the environment, employment and globalisation.

Students could not want a better introduction to Christian Ethics. Theological Book Review The ten chapters offer an outline for a basic course or module. it would be Ideal as an introductory course at both pre- and college level. At the same time there is material here, suitably supplemented from some of the sources given in the text, to provide a framework for a major study of the field. It is also precisely a useful background text for someone studying in another field, such as church history or dogmatics, who needs to have a quick overall survey of the field. Paul Ballard, Cardiff University Dr Messer packs a lot in and it is particularly good that he introduces us to some of the important contemporary voices which may not be so familiar to Readers. Michael Wilcockson, The Reader, Winter 2006, Vol.103, N Degrees4 I've found Neil Messer's SCM Studyguide to Christian Ethics to be an excellent introductory textbook to accompany my Christian Ethics course. Students find it accessible and engaging as preparatory reading for lectures and come to class with a good grounding in the subject. I recommend it highly. David Clough, University of Chester
