Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A compact and cogent work, which generates as many ideas as it does distinctions. It gives access to moral descriptions through rational considerations, which exhibit extraordinary sophistication and care....Swinburne has produced an exemplary work."—Theological Studies

"Swinburne has re-opened old issues in an interesting way."—Religious Studies

"Swinburne, one of the world's foremost philosophers of religion, turns his attention to the implications of philosophy and theology for ethics. This work is one of refined, almost sublime philosophical intelligence, and should be acquired by every college library. The texture of the philosophical tapestry woven herein is rich and detailed; the clarity and power of its historical vignettes lucid and informative."—Choice
