Item description for Ethics: Approaching Moral Decisions (Contours of Christian Philosophy) by Arthur Frank Holmes...

Overview
With over 60,000 copies in print since its original publication in 1984, Ethics has served numerous generations of students as a classic introduction to philosophical ethics from a Christian perspective. Over the years the philosophical landscape has changed somewhat, and in this new edition Arthur Holmes adjusts the argument and information throughout, completely rewriting the earlier chapter on virtue ethics and adding a new chapter on the moral agent. The book addresses the questions: What is good? What is right? How can we know? In doing so it also surveys a variety of approaches to ethics, including cultural relativism, emotivism, ethical egoism and utilitarianism--all with an acknowledgment of the new postmodern environment.

Reviews - What do customers think about Ethics: Approaching Moral Decisions (Contours of Christian Philosophy)?

Good Survey of Ethics  Mar 27, 2009
Overall, this is a fine survey of ethics from a Christian perspective. It is well written and offers much to consider. Highly recommended.
 
A Thoroughly Inadequate Treatment of the Natural Law  May 25, 2008
This book provides a thoroughly inadequate treatment of the Natural Law. Fortunately, wonderful alternatives exist, such as J. Budziszewski's What We Can't Not Know and Germain Grisez's Way of the Lord Jesus.
 
Short but deep  Feb 8, 2001
Holmes packs a lot into a short space. Undergraduate students have found it a bit heavy going, but for those willing to work through the text, it is profoundly insightful. A great introduction to various ethical philosophies in the West, their strengths and their shortcomings, with some chapters that apply the principles to specific ethical issues. The book is 17 years old but has a timelessness about it - unlike, say, John Stott's "Issues Facing Christians". Holmes does not give "current statistics" and tends to operate at the level of principle, which gives his work a helpful timelessness. Worth having on the shelf if you are a reader.
