In this excellent outline of Christian ethics, Robin W. Lovin achieves a balance between the questions and issues which form the core of the study of ethics, and the life situations from which those questions arise. Eschewing a sectarian approach which dismisses other understandings of the moral life, Lovin nonetheless lays claim to a specifically, Christian understanding of ethics by beginning with basic Christian convictions about the reality of God and human redemption, and weaving these convictions into the fabric of moral concerns that are widely shared in contemporary society. He takes note of the problems that arise when Christians try to act on or enforce their convictions in a pluralistic society, and recognizes the variety of theological and moral beliefs that are held within the Christian community, as well as in the wider society.
