""Moral Choices is characterized by particular strength in its discussion of ethical methodology, its approach to biuthical and business ethics issues, its accessibility and readability, its use of cases and discussion questions, and its engagement with a wide range of both secular and Christian thinkers through the ages." -David P. Gushee, Distinguished University Professor of Christian Ethics, Mercer University "Builds on the strength of the previous editions by deepening the analysis, by bringing the discussions up to date, and by adding a needful new chapter on ethics and economics...Clear, readable, well-informed, biblical, and pertinent." -Doug Groothuis, Professor of Philosophy, Denver Seminary With its unique union of theory and application and its well-organized, easy-to use design, Moral Choices has earned its place as the standard text for college ethics courses.
