In this second edition of the best-selling Cambridge Companion to Christian Ethics, Robin Gill brings together twenty essays by leading experts, to provide a comprehensive introduction to Christian ethics which is both authoritative and up to date. This volume boasts four entirely new chapters, while previous chapters and all bibliographies have been updated to reflect significant developments in the field over the last decade. Gill offers a superb overview of the subject, examining the scriptural bases of ethics as well as discussing Christian ethics in the context of contemporary issues, including war and the arms trade, social justice, ecology, economics, medicine and genetics. All of the contributors have a proven track record of balanced, comprehensive and comprehensible writing making this book an accessible and invaluable source not only for students in upper-level undergraduate courses, graduate students and teachers, but anyone interested in Christian ethics today.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"For a number of years, Cambridge University Press has produced a well-received 'Companion' series on various theological topics. That fine series continues with this latest volume on Christian ethics...Each contributor produces a genuinely Christian perspective on their topics. They seek to relate Christian ethics to Christian doctrine in a positive manner." James McCullough, Princeton Seminary Bulletin

"The Cambridge Companion to Christian Ethics successfully lives up to the considerable reputation established by the rest of the outstanding texts in this series. The volume brings together some of the greatest essays in the field of Christian ethics by contemporary thinkers from the U.S. and Britain...The organization of this Cambridge volume brilliantly lends itself to the classroom, moving gracefully from the theoretical, through the methodological, and ending with practical questions. This companion to Christian ethics should become the standard text for ethics courses...It should become a standard text for the serious study of Christian ethics." Religious Studies Review
