Overview

Where is God in a world marked by conflict and division? What about a world in which our technologies promise great good but also threaten our existence? What is God doing in a world where the demands for accumulation and acquisition create division and despair? Can Christians hope to be of positive influence in a world that does not always support, reflect, or even understand Christian commitments?

Christian ethics often raise these questions, and the possible answers vary widely. Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians is a tremendous resource for exploring a faithful response to perhaps the toughest question of all: what is God doing about evil? Author Jeph Holloway writes that the role of Christian ethics is to take seriously the challenge that, whatever God is doing, God calls us to participate in a distinctive task that embraces our own commitments and labors within the divine purpose. Ultimately, that God has taken the initiative to pursue that purpose and, remarkably, offers that we ourselves are part of the answer to “What is God doing about evil?”
