What Is Ethics? Why Should Christian's Care? Beginning with these basic questions, Stanley Grenz leads his readers into a theological engagement with moral inquiry. He sets forth the basics of ethics, considers the role and methods of Christian ethics in particular, and examines the ethical approaches of the Old Testament, the Gospels and Paul. He introduces the foundational theological ethics of Augustine, Thomas Aquinas, and Luther and the Reformers. And he concludes with an evenhanded discussion of modern and contemporary Christian ethicists.
Clear, concise, and well apprised of relevant literature, Grenz provides in this book a first-rate introduction to Christian ethics. The Moral Quest will well serve students, pastors and interested laypersons alike.
