About-

Christian Ethics focuses on understanding the relationship between one's ethical self, society's rules, and the consequences of one's actions. It operates from a Judeo-Christian perspective that also takes into account the ethical system of other major world religions.

Christian Ethics draws from philosophy, theology, and psychology. It considers the roles of personality development, conscience formation, gender difference, religious values, and social structures in ethical decision making. It probes the questions and dilemmas of good vs. evil, personal vs. communal values, authority vs. conscience, religion vs. society, and civil vs. moral law.

Examples and case studies drawn from the fields of social, medical, sexual, business, political, environmental, and personal ethics are used throughout the book and illuminate the process for personal decision making.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Caron's work shows that good ethics must be interdisciplinary. She is sensitive not only to the developments of biblical studies and theology.... but also to the behavioral and social sciences and feminist ethics, thus giving a person-centered character to moral analysis and decision making."

Richard M. Gula, S.S., St. Patrick's Seminary
