In this thorough update of a classic textbook, noted Christian thinker Norman Geisler evaluates contemporary ethical options (such as antinomianism, situation ethics, and legalism) and pressing issues of the day (such as euthanasia, homosexuality, and divorce) from a biblical perspective. The second edition is significantly expanded and updated, with new material and charts throughout the book. There are new chapters on animal rights, sexual ethics, and the basis for ethical decisions, as well as four new appendixes addressing drugs, gambling, pornography, and birth control. The author has significantly updated his discussion of abortion, biomedical ethics, war, and ecology and has expanded the selected readings, bibliography, and glossary.

Review: Christian Ethics

User Review  - Jake - Goodreads

A pretty decent intro to Christian ethics. Not as in depth as most ethics majors would prefer, but we're not all supposed to be ethics majors, now are we? Could definitely stand for some more 21st century editing though. Read full review
