Robin Gill argues that moral communities should take center stage in ethics. This book examines recent evidence about church communities in relation to faith, moral order and love, and shows that churchgoers are distinctive in their attitudes, beliefs and behavior. Some attitudes change over time, and there are several moral disagreements among different groups of churchgoers. Moreover, their values and behavior are shared by many nonchurchgoers also. The distinctiveness of church communities in the modern world is thus real but relative, and is crucial for the task of Christian ethics.Examines recent social attitude surveys to compare the views of churchgoing and non-churchgoing communities, focusing on faith, moral order and loveConcludes that whether or not someone goes to church regularly is a good indicator of a whole range of beliefs, moral attitudes and behaviourConsiders the implications of churchgoing for ethics in a postmodern ageContentsPrefaceList of tablesIntroductionPart I.
