Overview

'Ethics after Christendom' proposes that the special moral challenge facing churches in post-Christian societies is to center Christian ethics ecclesially while also keeping it both evangelical and catholic. Siding with the diagnosis that North American Christendom has drawn to an end, Vigen Guroian provides an analysis of the present cultural context in which Christian ethics must now be done, discusses the role of churches after Christendom, and shows - through the application of ecclesial ethics to family, medicine, and ecology - how liturgy enriches and deepens the Christian ethical vision.
