MEDIA REVIEWS
This is a very well-presented volume of ten fiercely intelligent engagements on the current state of the discipline ... To those in the guild it will be essential reading. To those beyond it, it provides a window into the state of the art. * The Expository Times *
The Freedom of a Christian Ethicist is a book not to be missed. Unusually rewarding in theological insight, spiritual nourishment and ethical challenge, this collection engages a tradition that is very much alive. * Ecclesiology *
This volume should be commended for its rich and varied contribution to contemporary Protestant ethics. * Reviews in Religion and Theology *
An eclectic and unfailingly provocative collection of real contemporary relevance ... I can imagine a well-merited place for these essays in an advanced seminary or university class on moral theology. * Reviews in Religion and Theology (23:4) *
Very thought provoking both in wrestling with the Yoder issue and thinking through what freedom and obedience look like in this fearful new world. * Theology *
This distinguished collection of studies of the legacy and prospects of Protestant moral theology brings together some of the most lively thinkers in the field. In scope, argumentative power and theological dedication, the explorations of the enduring value of the various Reformation ethical traditions could hardly be bettered. * John Webster, University of St Andrews, UK *
Recent Protestant ethics is notable for its ecumenism. This provocative volume - without anxiety, caricature, or triumphalism - adopts a fresh approach by rethinking the distinctive legacies of various Reformation sources themselves. At a time when this inheritance can be met with indifference or suspicion, The Freedom of a Christian Ethicist assembles a stellar group of essays that speak to urgent questions of theory and practice. This diverse assessment by leading scholars will be of interest to many beyond the "guild" of Christian ethics. But it is a must read for those within it. * Eric Gregory, Princeton University, USA *
