Common Sense about Christian Ethics

£4.99

Product description

"Common Sense about Christian Ethics is an attempt to place Christian behaviour within the total commitment of Christian Faith. It endeavours to face up to the dilemma in which the Christian necessarily finds himself when he seeks to realise a personalistic and sacrificial ethic in a world where the fact of power is brutally real. This dilemma is seen to have been with the Christian Church across the centuries, and to have arise out of an ethical pattern which encourages men to conquer the world, that is to direct the forces of history, and yet to do so with a Cross. Where the latter is forgotten, the Christian ideology can be dangerous - in the wrong way. The relationship of this dynamic, non-legalistic and highly personal ethic to modern problems is suggested in the later chapters."

Book in very good condition, although there is an ex-library stamp on the first page and some wear to the dust jacket.
