A comprehensive introduction to Christian ethics addressing today’s most challenging moral issues.

Invitation to Christian Ethics is an indispensable guide for helping pastors, counselors, and everyday Christians navigate today’s difficult moral questions.

This survey is followed by twelve chapters devoted to some of the thorniest issues Christians encounter today, such as:

  • Sexuality, including homosexuality, sexual identity, and gender
  • Marriage and divorce
  • Infertility and assisted reproductive technologies
  • Abortion
  • Physician-assisted suicide
  • Race relations
  • Creation care
  • Capital punishment
  • Just war, pacifism, and the use of lethal force

Magnuson provides biblical insight into each topic and presents key moral considerations. He also answers specific, practical questions that arise and concludes with a summary of his recommended approach to each issue. Readers will learn how to grapple with difficult moral questions and will receive guidance for some of life’s most challenging ethical conundrums.
