Stanley Hauerwas, Samuel Wells, "The Blackwell Companion to Christian Ethics (Blackwell Companions to Religion)"
Wiley-Blackwell | 2004 | ISBN: 063123506X | 528 pages | PDF | 1,4 MB

"Love God and love your neighbour have been the twin commandments in the New Testament from the beginning. Nevertheless, worshipping God and practising neighbourly charity have usually gone in tandem, essential but separate activities. At best, moral theology may come in as a sequel or even appendix to dogmatics. The originality of this book lies in grounding Christian ethics not even in dogmatics but in the liturgy of the eucharist. Wonderfully worked out by the many fine scholars gathered by Hauerwas and Wells, this is a genuinely new turn in the history of Christian experience."
–Fergus Kerr, Regent, Blackfriars, Oxford

“This accessible volume will interest undergraduates and more advanced scholars alike.”
–Karen Melham, Emory University

“The volume offers a salutary reminder that Christian ethics is not simply one among other theoretical enterprises, but rather a sustained and disciplined attempt to understand the deepest dimensions of the Christian life. It rightly observes that Christian worship (at least when done well) is paradigmatic for discipleship and central means of moral information. The best chapters in this Companion communicate a deep sense of the distinctive nature of Christian ethics in a way that benefits us all.”
–Stephen J. Pope, Boston College
