The Oxford Handbook of Theological Ethics offers an authoritative and compelling guide to this discipline. Thirty of the world's most distinguished specialists provide new articles in order to offer a survey of and analysis of the subject. Ethics is first placed firmly within the Christian theological tradition, from which thought and action can never be neatly separated. Four sections then explore the sources of Christian moral knowledge (scripture, divine commands, church tradition, reason and natural law, experience); the structure of the Christian life (vocation, virtue, rules, responsibility, death); the spirit of the Christian life (faith, hope, love); and the spheres of the Christian life (government, family, economy, culture, church). The final section of the text contains articles discussing and evaluating certain scholarly works that have in the past influentially offered (different) visions of how best to structure the field of theological ethics.

Keywords: Christian theological tradition; thought; action; moral knowledge; scripture; divine commands; church tradition; reason; natural law; experience
