Description
Summary:"This important work explores the distinctiveness of Christian ethics, particularly through its interconnections with doctrine and the wider history of religions." "Brian Hebblethwaite shows how the distinctiveness of Christian ethics can only be understood and appreciated against this wider background. In a remarkably skilful and sensitive way he brings out the pluriform and complex nature of that distinctiveness - in Christian individuals and communities as they reflect something of the triune love of God, and in contemporary humanism and the major world faiths in which this love is also discernible to different degrees." "He concludes with an extended exploration of the strengths and weaknesses of the different religions in their contributions to the overcoming of evil." "The result is a seminal study for everyone interested in ethics, theology and religious studies."--Jacket.
