An introduction to a book such as this one serves prospective readers best if it tells them what they should know in order to determine whether it is the sort of book they want to read — providing that information is the aim here. The various Handbooks published by Oxford University Press are not aimed at beginners; nor are they aimed only at scholars who work in a particular field. Their target falls somewhere between those two groups — those who know a good bit, who would be in a position to do advanced work in a field, and who might be helped and stimulated by a survey of the field. It is hoped that this volume will do that for readers interested in the field of theological ethics. So this is a book not in ethics generally but in a certain kind of ethics, and it attempts to survey that field. An overview of the topics covered is presented.
