Christianity presumes morality is connected in
important ways to God. God & Morality in Christian
Traditions explores a wide range of philosophical
issues related to that connection, including the
metaphysical foundations of morality, the Fall and its
implications, and how faith can affect one’s ability to
discern obligations. Also included is a robust
treatment of how vice and virtue shape one’s ethical
life, as well as a timely discussion of how people—
both Christians and non-Christians—can address deep
moral disagreement in a pluralistic society. Drawing
on Catholic, Protestant, and free church traditions,
this volume highlights perspectives drawn from the
natural law tradition, divine command theory, and
virtue ethics, among other theoretical frameworks.
Along the way, the authors provide salient insights on
metaethics, moral epistemology, character
development, and applied ethics. Scholars and
students in Christian ethics, philosophy, and theology
will benefit from this carefully edited and rigorously
argued collection of essays.
“A timely and useful collection on some of the deepest questions about the relationship between God and morality by an impressive group of scholars.”
—Jonathan Kvanvig, professor of philosophy, Washington University, St. Louis
“This volume aptly frames and attends to the crucial issues and questions regarding the relationship between God and morality. The essays rightly take their place at the intersection of theology and philosophy and wonderfully combine rigor and constructive suggestion. The volume also does not privilege one approach, nor does it form an artificial consensus among the contributors. No uniform philosophical approach is synonymous with the Christian tradition and its relationship with contemporary philosophy. We owe a great debt to the editors for putting together such a fine work of scholarship and bringing the world of contemporary philosophy into serious conversation with particular expressions of the Christian faith.”
—Frederick D. Aquino, professor of theology and philosophy, Abilene Christian University, Graduate School of Theology
