Ethics beyond Rules
In Ethics beyond Rules Keith Stanglin offers a clear and accessible guide for thoughtful Christians who want to lead ethical lives. Stanglin's easy-to-understand Christian ethical system doesn't have a long list of rules to follow but instead bases moral decision-making on Christian love.
Stanglin is concerned less with a comprehensive ethics and scholarly discourse than with introducing everyone to important moral principles and modeling a way to reason through concrete issues. This resource does not answer every ethical question Christians face today, though it does provide examples such as abortion, sexual ethics, consumerism, technology, and politics. Instead, Stanglin provides a love-based framework for moral decisions that stands with the historic Christian faith, giving Christians the tools to consider the moral problems of today and the foundation to confront new issues in the years to come.
