Endorsements & Reviews-

"William Schweiker presents a realistic multidimensional theory of the moral life. It has stayed fresh and been inspiring for twenty years since its first publication. A young classic in ethical theory!"

—Michael Welker, Senior professor and director of the Research Center International and Interdisciplinary Theology, University of Heidelberg, Germany

“Schweiker’s reflections are strikingly original and they ought to be required reading for everyone in the field of theological ethics.”

-Douglas F. Ottati, Professor of Theology and Ethics,

Union Theological Seminary and Presbyterian School of Christian Education

“With this new work, Schweiker continues his vital exploration of hermeneutical realism, responsibility ethics, moral formation, and the lives we live in our complex late modern cultures. This is a bracing, complex text that richly rewards those who engage it with the care it requires.”

-Jean Bethke Elshtain, Laura Rockefeller Professor of Social and Political Ethics, University of Chicago, and author of Augustine and the Limits of Politics

“Schweiker has a comprehensive knowledge of contemporary moral thought—philosophical and theological, applied and theoretical. He brings a wealth of material together with a unifying theological perspective that sharpens our questions and renews our hope. This is an outstanding achievement.”

-Robin W. Lovin, Dean and Professor of Ethics, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University
