Book Cover
The Blackwell Companion to Christian Ethics

The Blackwell Companion to Christian Ethics presents an innovative exposition of Christian ethics, seen through the lens of Christian worship. Editors Stanley Hauerwas and Samuel Wells challenge conventional approaches to the subject, contending that it is Christian worship that shapes the moral life of Christians. In this way, they restore a sense of the integral connection between Christian ethics and theology. The structure of the volume reflects this fresh approach to the discipline, following the practices of the Eucharist in a liturgical sequence from the “Gathering” through to the “Dismissal”.

This Companion is ecumenical in spirit and embraces contributions from leading commentators within the Roman Catholic, Anglican, Methodist, Presbyterian, Mennonite, and Pentecostal traditions. Designed to be accessible to introductory students, it will have a major impact on the study of Christian ethics.
