   schema:description "Ian McDonald brings Christian ethics into the pressing issues of modern society, making full use of case studies and the shared insights of a team of researchers. Concentrating on the personal and social aspects of human life, this study examines the person, including conscience, virtue, character and motive; the Bible and ethics; relationships and their importance; family values; sexual orientation. In addition, special studies concentrate on political reconciliation; community care and development; communication in the media age; and integrity in business. In fully working out the theory and practice of Christian ethics in relation to particular experiences, this book is a pioneering textbook in the field and will be valued by everyone with an interest in finding moral courses of action today, as well as students in Christian ethics."@en ;
