Doing Right and Being Good: Catholic and Protestant Readings in Christian Ethics is a reader that represents both the Roman Catholic and Protestant moral traditions. The selected essays cover such topics as Christian pacifism, feminism, and liberation theology, as well as classical readings by major figures in the history of Christian moral thought and mainstream movements. Sample readings include "Appropriate Vulnerability: A Sexual Ethic for Singles?", "The Biblical Meaning of Poverty", "How Do Love and Justice Work Together?" and much more. An index to scripture references and an index of authors and subjects round out this erudite, philosophically deep compendium. Highly recommended especially for religious studies students focusing on Christian Ethics.
