Product Overview

Is there a distinctive Lutheran ethical stance? What does this deep and robust religious tradition have to say to today's dilemmas in personal and social life, business, and public policy? Here, ten Lutheran ethicists explore Lutheran emphases, themes, and approaches to offer their account of Lutheran ethics as a way of life in today's world. Writing in dialogue, they raise foundational concerns of biblical and theological sources and norms, of Christian freedom and responsibility, of call and social witness, of justice and formation in prayer. Then in a lively Table Talk the participants discuss and debate the tradition's insights and oversights and show how it might illumine today's burning ethical issues, especially homosexuality. This excellent resource for classrooms, group discussion, and individual study also includes a comprehensive bibliography.
