Theological Ethics Video Lectures
In Theological Ethics Video Lectures, theologian, pastor, and ethicist W. Ross Hastings guides the church to think deeply and theologically about the moral formation of persons in our communities, about ethical inquiry and action, and about the tone and content of our engagement in the public square. Lessons present a biblical perspective and a gospel-centered framework for thinking about complex contemporary issues in ways that are life-giving and that will lead learners into greater flourishing in community.
Hastings's framework for ethics is robustly theological and Trinitarian. Ethics isolated from the gospel and theology becomes bad news, but when it is informed by and empowered by participation in the triune God of grace, it is part of the good news of the gospel. Theological Ethics Video Lectures is for those who lead churches or ministries (or who someday will) and who seek deep theological grounding as they daily encounter ethical and moral issues where they need to provide a gracious, truthful, and gospel-directed response.
