Description


Outlining the distinctive elements of Christian ethics, Moral Choices is the standard text for college ethics courses.

Moral questions are at the core of life's most vital issues. But today, we see a breaking down of humanity's ability to distinguish between right and wrong. After describing a seven-step procedure for thinking through ethical dilemmas, author Scott Rae uses case studies to address some of today's most challenging ethical and social issues. He guides students in thinking critically and biblically about issues, including:

  • Abortion
  • Euthanasia
  • Capital Punishment
  • Sexual Ethics
  • War
  • Technologies, including reproductive and genetic
  • Ethics and Economics
  • Creation Care and Animal Rights
  • Gun-Control
  • Race, Gender, and Diversity
  • Immigration, Refugees, and Border Control

This book also introduces other ethical systems and their key historical proponents, including Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, Thomas Aquinas, and Immanuel Kant.

With its unique union of theory and application and its well-organized, easy-to-use design, the fourth edition of Moral Choices also offers extensive updates, revisions, and three brand new chapters all designed to help students develop a sound and current basis for making ethical decisions in today's complex postmodern culture.
