Moral Conflict and Christian Religion

Moral Conflict and Christian Religion

by Anthony J. Blasi


5 New & Used Starting at $1.99


This work takes up the problem of moral conflict, wherein a person must choose between two or more evils. The problem lies behind such issues as the defensive war, therapeutic abortion, and contraception. It becomes a religious question because, as the author argues, religion elicits the same kind of openness to values as is needed for addressing moral dilemmas. After culling insights out of the history of Christian ethics, Blasi presents phenomenologies of both moral decision making and religion, and uses the results to address the variety of moral dilemmas.
