The contemporary ethical and moral landscape is one of confusion and cacophony. Theories of ethics are often presented in terms of the horns of a dilemma in our postmodern world. On the one hand, ethical relativism is deemed both descriptive and prescriptive; on the other hand, moral absolutism is foundational. In reality, other options exist. Craig A. Boyd presents the alternative of natural law morality in A Shared Morality: A Narrative Defense of Natural Law Ethics. Throughout this text, Boyd traces the history of natural law morality from the Greeks, the Bible, and church history. Not only does Boyd explain this theory but he also compares it to and critiques it with other theories of morality: divine command theory, analytic ethics, sociobiology, and postmodernism. Readers will be surprised at Boyd's conclusion that natural law and virtue ethics complement one another. Natural law morality, in short, provides the basis of human morality by recognizing universally known features of human nature; these features can manifest themselves in myriad ways, depending on environment, culture, and custom. This groundbreaking work will find a home in the bookshelves of college and seminary professors as well as students of philosophy, theology, and ethics.
