Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...worth reading for its concise review of the basic arguments pertaining to pluralism and for Markham's clear, well-reasoned presentation of his own position." Pro Ecclesia

"...a remarkable new book....I am pleased to recommend it as one of the most intelligently provocative essays on religion and public life to have appeared in a long time." Richard John Neuhaus, First Things

"...Plurality of Christian Ethics is a worthwhile text. It is well-written and documented....an important contribution to Anglican theological studies. Additionally, it provides a useful alternative to both the modern secular approach to plurality and the Christian exclusivism..." Wendy Dackson, Journal of Church and State
