Westminster John Knox Press, Jan 1, 1998 - Religion - 90 pages

Originally published in 1958,The Structure of Christian Ethicsis Joseph Sittler's lucid interpretation of a truly Christological approach to moral behavior. Recognizing the need for the church to engage society, Sittler contends that Christian ethics is not situational, as suggested by his contemporary Joseph Fletcher, but rather conformation with Christ.

The Library of Theological Ethics series focuses on what it means to think theologically and ethically. It presents a selection of important and otherwise unavailable texts in easily accessible form. Volumes in this series will enable sustained dialogue with predecessors though reflection on classic works in the field.
