About this title


By examining Carl Michalson's concept of responsibility, Existence, Faith and Responsibility treats, characterizes and evaluates Michalson's ethics as an integral part of his theology. Michalson's ethics, based on existential subjectivity, as opposed to subjectivism or universalism, and drawing upon Wesley's idea of holiness, is an ethics of two syntheses: word and world, and decision and character. As such, it makes a significant contribution to current discussions of theological ethics.


«In 'Existence, Faith and Responsibility' Sam Roberts has proven his gifts for lucid discussions of types of Christian ethics and an uncanny ability to go to the heart of the matter in theological discussions. We are fortunate indeed to have now this fine contribution to contemporary ethics from the perspective of Carl Michalson's thought.» (Arthur B. Holmes, West Virginia Wesleyan College)
«In this needed and helpful book Sam Roberts shows with clarity and thoroughness that many of Michalson's ideas were essentially ethical in their import, most particularly his idea of responsibility. The author also suggests the contributions which Michalson's thinking can make to other movements - such as liberation theology and ethics of virtue and character - that are currently of interest.» (Edward LeRoy Long, Jr., James W. Pearsall Professor Emeritus of Christian Ethics and Theology of Culture Drew University)
«I found Roberts to be extremely thorough in his presentation of Michalson's thought and its interaction with other significant ethicists. It is a work of particular importance for those interested in the relationship of theology and ethics.» (Carol Wilson, Candler School of Theology, Emory University)
