Moral Choices Video Lectures features 16 lessons and is designed to help students develop a sound and current basis for making ethical decisions in today’s complex postmodern culture. The lectures outline the distinctive elements of Christian ethics while avoiding undue dogmatism.

After describing a seven-step procedure for tackling ethical dilemmas, ethicist and professor Scott Rae uses case studies to address some of today’s most pressing social issues. He guides students in thinking critically and biblically about abortion, reproductive technologies, genetic technologies and human cloning, euthanasia, capital punishment, sexual ethics, war, and economics. All new sessions on violence and gun control; race, gender, and diversity; and immigration, refugees, and border control helps students wrestle with today's most difficult ethical issues.
