Description :Beginning with the basics, Stanley Grenz leads his readers into a theological engagement with moral inquiry. In a concise yet reliable fashion, Grenz goes on to introduce the foundational theological ethics of Augustine, Aquinas, and Luther and the Reformers, then continues with an evenhanded discussion of modern and contemporary Christian ethicists, including Albrecht Ritschl, Karl Barth, Paul Ramsey, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Martin Luther King Jr., Gustavo Gutirrez, Rosemary Radford Ruether, Stanley Hauerwas, Carl F. H. Henry and Oliver O'Donovan. The book concludes with Grenz's own constructive proposal of "comprehensive love," rooted in the life of the Trinity and worked out in Christian community. Clearly written and well apprised of relevant literature, is a first-rate introduction to Christian ethics. It will serve students, pastors and interested laypersons alike.
