Understanding the basis of making moral choices is crucial as society becomes increasingly complex. Moral Choices: An Introduction to Ethics gives college students a solid grounding in both theory of ethics and its applications to the social issues of today. Avoiding undue dogmatism, Professor Scott B. Rae outlines the distinctive elements of Christian ethics. Students are also exposed to various ethical systems and the key historical figures associated with them, including Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, Aquinas, and Kant.

After describing a seven-step procedure for tackling ethical dilemmas, the author uses case studies to address a number of current issues:

• Abortion
• Reproductive Technologies
• Euthanasia
• Capital Punishment
• Sexual Ethics
• The Morality of War
• Genetic Technologies and Human Cloning
• Ethics and Economics

    " A great starter book in Christian ethics. This book touches on several "hot buttons" for today's culture. "

    " Deals with all the issues but certainly does not do much to establish a distinctly Christian way of doing ethics. "

    " I book that helps a Christian think through ethically issues more reasonably and biblically. It covers all your hot topics: abortion, euthansia, reproduction, homosexuality, legislating morality, etc. "
