This book addresses an important topic and fills a major gap in developments in modern theology and Christian ethics. Significant treatments include Wolfhart Pannenberg's historical overview of the relationship between modernism and Christian faith, John Webster's meticulous analysis of Christian theology's contribution to modern conceptions of conscience, J. L. O'Donovan's critique of liberal contractarian theory, and Alasdair MacIntyre's examination of the critical issues which Christianity raises for secular philosophy. Specially commissioned by the Editors, this study incorporates unpublished work by many international scholars of the highest standing, including Alasdair MacIntyre, Wolfhart Pannenberg, Stanley Hauerwas, John Webster, Miroslav Volf, Fergus Kerr and Oliver O'Donovan, as well as chapters by the Editors Michael Banner and Alan Torrance.

'Comprising essays by a distinguished group of scholars, this volume demonstrates the recent resurgence of interest in theological ethics. By reflecting philosophically, historically and doctrinally on the ways in which discourse about God and human action are connected, these contributions will provide an important point of reference for further discussion of the relationship between theology and ethics.'
David Fergusson, Professor of Divinity, University of Edinburgh

'A book like this (with its distinguished array of contributors) offers a decisive reprimand to those who believe that Christian ethics can be pursued without any detailed consideration of Christian doctrine. Instead, here we find a lively engagement between them both that provides real interest and challenge. A breath of fresh air!'

David Brown FBA, Van Mildert Professor of Divinity, University of Durham Department of Theology and Religion.
