Pressestimmen'The Cambridge Companion to Christian Ethics successfully lives up to the considerable reputation established by the rest of the outstanding texts in this series ... the organization of this Cambridge volume brilliantly lends itself to the classroom, moving gracefully from the theoretical, through the methodological, and ending with practical questions. This companion to Christian ethics should become the standards text for ethics courses taught at seminaries and in upper level philosophy courses that focus on religion and ethics. It should become a standard text for the serious study of Christian ethics.' Religious Studies Review
