Christian Theism and Moral Philosophy addresses what may be termed a shortfall in moral philosophy from a Christian perspective with this collection of twelve essays from Christian moral philosophers and theologians who, indeed, address the fundamental questions of moral philosophy "with integrity, independence, and Christian boldness." This study of human conduct and values is in three parts. (1) The Metaphysics of Morals. What is morality about? What are the metaphysical foundations and implications of morality? (2) The Epistemology of Ethics. How are ethical propositions/judgments justified? (3) The Ethics of Love. What are the basic rules, principles, or judgments of an ultimate, adequate ethical theory? These seminal essays will be of interest to scholars and students of religious ethics, but also of interest to those of "mainstream" moral philosophy who work from a Christian worldview as well as to non-Christians with an interest in the relation between Christian theism and moral philosophy.
