Item Description...
Christian faith plainly does not guarentee moral behavior, nor do morality and ethics require Christian faith. How can Christians think responsibly about ethical matters, and in what way can they make moral claims in a largely non-Christian society?

Publishers Description
Brings people with serious moral disagreements into constructive conversation.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Exploring Christian Ethics and morality productively.  Apr 28, 2000
Consequences, (Morality, Ethics, and the Future) by James H. Burtness provides a window into parsing aspects of Elian Gonzales issues, the Supreme Court's recent appeals, just war?, fidelity in marriage, and handles on church conflicts. Although he prefers one of four ethical positions, namely "consequentialism" he measures high with this author in another of these four, "character ethics". A half century ago he spurred me to high "A" efforts in learning Greek at Princeton Theological Seminary. He is still parsing Greek. "Be perfect" is an ambiguous form in Greek, ...more appropriately, ...future indicative..."You will be perfect." p.144. He's a durable servant, again helping the reader reorder personal and social life, linking belief and behavior. He often soars to literary materials involves an attempt to reconceptualize in the here and now the text that was contextualized in the there and then." p160. The reader will be traveling with him over 20 centuries of thinking about Christian ethics. This is a must book to help a person get back on the road responding to God's calling-the consequences being sharing in accomplishing God's goals for mankind. END
Balanced introduction to the discipline of ethics  Mar 27, 2000
I would highly recommend this book as an introduction to Christian ethics both for the student and the layperson. Burtness succeeds in making this book both informative and accessible, being neither ponderous nor condescending.

This book contains a balanced overview of different approaches one might take to developing a Christian ethic. He does have his own perspective, but he declares it at the outset and scrupulously avoids unfairly treating other approaches. When he does more fully develop a teleological ethic (the ethical school he identifies with), he does it as an example of the way one *might* form a Christian ethic based on *one* of several valid approaches to doing ethics. He looks at every approach sympathetically.

This book is ideal for anyone looking for an introduction to the field of Christian Ethics. The book is informative, balanced, accessible, and interesting.
