Item description for Faith and Freedom: Christian Ethicsin a Pluralist Culture (ATF) (ATF) by David Neville & Philip Matthews...
Australian Christians, like Christians in many socities, live in a pluralistic culture. This makes the issues of faith, freedom and their interelationship all the more critical. In a pluralist context, Christian faith and freedom must be expressed and embodied in a coherent rather than discordant way. The authors of these reflections on key ethical concerns represent the Anabaptist, Anglican, Baptist, Lutheran, Methodist, Presbyterian, Roman Catholic and Uniting Church traditions, yet there is a hamrony within this plurality of theological and ecclesiological voices. Contributors include: John Howard Yoder, Charles Birch, Stanley Hauerwas, and Thorwald Lorenzen.

An anthology of writings discussing Christian faith Oct 7, 2004
Collaboratively compiled, organized, and edited by David Neville (Lecturer in New Testament at St. Mark's National Theological Centre in Canberra and the School of Theology, Charles Sturt University) and Philip Matthews (Lecturer in the Philosophy Department at the University of Notre Dame, Australia), Faith And Freedom: Christian Ethics In A Pluralist Culture is an anthology of writings by learned authors discussing Christian faith in the context of the pluralist culture of Australia. Views from Anabaptist, Anglican, Baptist, Lutheran, Roman Catholic, Presbyterian and more traditions offer contrasting discussions of such matters as Christian ethics, the politics of Jesus and Christian pacifism, whether seen as political action or as public theology, and much more. A literate and scholarly amalgamation of probing questions and the search to draw answers from reason, scripture, and the often harsh lessons of history itself.
