This book addresses an important topic and fills a major gap in developments in modern theology and Christian ethics. Significant treatments include Wolfhart Pannenberg's historical overview of the relationship between modernism and Christian faith, John Webster's meticulous analysis of Christian theology's contribution to modern conceptions of conscience, J. L. O'Donovan's critique of liberal contractarian theory, and Alasdair MacIntyre's examination of the critical issues which Christianity raises for secular philosophy. Specially commissioned by the Editors, this study incorporates unpublished work by many international scholars of the highest standing, including Alasdair MacIntyre, Wolfhart Pannenberg, Stanley Hauerwas, John Webster, Miroslav Volf, Fergus Kerr and Oliver O'Donovan, as well as chapters by the Editors Michael Banner and Alan Torrance.
"As explained in the book's excellent introduction, the editors have discerned that the religious response can be grouped into four ways of understanding the relationship between morals and theology...While these essays are, at times, quite technical in nature, they are well worth the effort. They possess tremendous historical, philosophical, and theological depth, with several integrating Scripture in profound ways and exhibiting unusual rhetorical power. Each essay displays a depth and sophistication that is commensurate with senior standing of its respective contributor. I would highly recommend this collection for purchase by academic libraries, graduate students, and professors in the field, and also by ambitious laypersons and clergy. " Robert E. Meditz, Anglican Theological Review --Sanford Lakoff
