The latest edition of a classic text, updated with case studies of contemporary issues, offers a proven method of class engagement and basic understanding of ethics.
Designed specifically for use in undergraduate and beginning graduate courses, this new edition has eleven revised and five new cases, including cases on gun violence, immigrant detention, hookup culture and sexual violence, and families with transgender children.
“As someone who's annually been assigning case studies from an earlier version of this book to graduate students in my ‘Introduction to Christian Ethics’ class, I heartily commend this revised version. The editors have wisely retained cases that raise perennial issues in Christian ethics while adding new ones that better reflect current events. By teaching Christian ethics in this manner, students will be able to empathetically place themselves among the various characters described in each case and deepen their knowledge of key sources of and concepts in Christian ethics through the commentary that follows each case.”--Grace Kao, co-editor, Encountering the Sacred: Feminist Reflections on Women’s Lives
