Talking about Ethics springs from a passion to see Christians engaging in ethical conversations in a thoughtful and winsome way. Ethical conversations are more than simply interesting diversions or a way to arrive at the right answer. Instead, they should be understood also as effective tools for Christians to use in various ways. They are tools for discipleship, training and evangelism, and can add extra dimensions to how we study the Bible and meet together.
This book is divided into two parts. The first section provides a general overview of approaches to ethics. In order to be able to have good discussions about ethics, we need to start by understanding our own and other people’s ethical ideas. The second section turns to ways of using ethics as a tool in Christian life. This includes some very practical ideas about using these ethical skills in ways that enrich and challenge in a variety of settings.
