In this challenging book, Robin Gill shows how important and distinctive Christian ethics is, and what a crucial contribution it can make in secular fields. In the first part he describes how a Christian ethic has developed over recent years. He goes on to explore current environmental issues, such as biotechnology. In the third part he considers some of the most difficult moral problems we face today—for example AIDS, nuclear war, and social control.
As in all his books, Professor Gill combines a wide understanding of complex issues with an attractively readable style. He has provided a valuable antidote to that strand in contemporary Christian ethics based on the assumption that there is some easy and unequivocal route from Biblical faith to wise Christian social and political action.
