The Blackwell Companion to Christian Ethics
Title: The Blackwell Companion to Christian Ethics
Editors: Stanley Hauerwas and Samuel Wells
Date of Publication: 2006
Love God and love your neighbour have been the twin commandments in the New Testament from the beginning...Nevertheless, worshipping God and practising neighbourly charity have usually gone in tandem, essential but separate activities. At best, moral theology may come in as a sequel or even appendix to dogmatics. The originality of this book lies in grounding Christian ethics not even in dogmatics but in the liturgy of the eucharist. Wonderfully worked out by the many fine scholars gathered by Hauerwas and Wells, this is a genuinely new turn in the history of Christian experience.
