The Gift of Ethics

  • By Trevor George Hunsberger Bechtel
Product Description
Structured on the Beatitudes, The Gift of Ethics is a short, readable introduction to the major ideas in Christian ethics.

""Bechtel gently and persuasively draws newcomers to the field of Christian ethics into an understanding of Christian identity and practice, through personal, scriptural, and cinematic stories, along with a small dose of philosophical background and prompts for discussion. In a conversational style, he shows students and church groups how to start to receive and embody a Beatitudes-based life in Christ. The Gift of Ethics is introductory, substantive, and accessible--a rare gift indeed."" --Margaret B. Adam, St. Stephen's House, University of Oxford, UK ""Trevor Bechtel doesn't just tell us that stories are foundational for ethical thinking and living, he shows us.

By the end, he hasn't demanded authority for his position but by cultivating a collaborative relationship with his readers he's earned it."" --Megan M.
