In this excellent outline of Christian ethics, Robin W.
Lovin achieves a balance between the questions and issues
which form the core of the study of ethics, and the life
situations from which those questions arise. Eschewing a
sectarian approach which dismisses other understandings of
the moral life, Lovin nonetheless lays claim to a
specifically, Christian understanding of ethics by beginning
with basic Christian convictions about the reality of God
and human redemption, and weaving these convictions into the
fabric of moral concerns that are widely shared in
contemporary society. He takes note of the problems that
arise when Christians try to act on or enforce their
convictions in a pluralistic society, and recognizes the
variety of theological and moral beliefs that are held
within the Christian community, as well as in the wider society.
