Description

Shannon and Patricia Jung discuss their new book, Moral Issues and Christian Responses, Eight Edition



This popular anthology for the study of Christian ethics, now in its eighth edition, has been a mainstay of undergraduate courses for nearly thirty years. Shannon and Patricia Jung provide an introduction to contemporary moral issues from decidedly, yet diverse, Christian moral perspectives. The anthology intentionally seeks a range of voices to produce a kind of "point/counterpoint" discussion of an ethical issue. Issues include: the distinctiveness of Christian ethics, sexuality, reproductive rights, prejudice, immigration, the environment, economics, biomedical ethics, death and dying, terrorism, war, and globalization.

Endorsements

"As current as it is reliable, this text immerses readers in the careful deliberation of moral dilemmas by challenging them to articulate their own well-reflected perspectives on the burning issues of our time. Sacrificing neither guiding orientation nor the complexity of the topics, the editors are masters of pedagogy in the art of ethical deliberation."
—Craig Nessan
Wartburg Theological Seminary

"Patricia Beattie Jung and Shannon Jung have edited a widely diverse and wonderfully engaging set of essays that ought to keep any ethics course talking. From Cardinal Avery Dulles, Walter Brueggemann, and Rowan Williams to Phyllis Trible, Cornel West, Ada María Isasi-Díaz, and Karen Lebacqz, the collection highlights the energy, intelligence, and originality of contemporary Christian stances on a compelling array of ethical issues. Indispensable for anyone interested in teaching an exciting and comprehensive course on what Christianity brings to the challenges of everyday life."
