An Introduction to Christian Ethics uses a Christian approach while encouraging students to develop a method of dealing with issues for themselves and to reach conclusions that have significance for their lives.
Roger Crook wrote this book based on his long experience teaching courses on Christian ethics to college students. He has written a great deal of materials for college-aged young people and is able to effectively communicate with them. The framework for his approach is the Apostle Paul's summary statement, "For in Christ Jesus...the only thing that counts is faith working through love." The elaboration of this theme involves an attempt to understand current issues and developments, an appropriate use of information drawn from a wide variety of sources, and an application of relevant biblical and theological concepts.
