Christian Ethics And Human Nature


In Christian Ethics and Human Nature Terence Penelhum identifies the characteristics that set Christian ethics apart from secular ethics in a world that commonly thinks it has adopted Christian principles. He traces the Christian understanding of human nature to it’s roots in basic Christian teaching, and compares that view with the views of other religions. Finally, Penelhum suggests that the Christian perspective of human nature should incorporate our place in the natural world as a whole. Throughout the book, Penelhum places Christian ethics in dialogue with science, psychology, and religious pluralism in a way that challenges the reader to rethink traditional ideas about Christian ethics and the nature of being human.
