Religion and Ethics Today: God's World and Human Responsibilities, Volume 1
Religion and Ethics Today: God's World and Human Responsibilities, Volume 1 combines the major themes and topics that are at the core of Western religions and ethics. The material examines central religious and moral issues and their correlative founders, teachers, and systems from an evolutionist approach. The book is organized into seven sections: God, the Cosmos, and nature; humanity, mind, and civilization; religion and ethics as the human ordering of life; ethics and values in systems without God; biomedical ethics and moral controversies; climate change and human responsibility; and issues of global injustice. Written from a theistic evolution as a new standard approach to teaching theology and ethics, the text explores its topics outside the borders or confines of a single, traditional religious denomination and its concomitant confessions or dogmas. It builds academic discourse on Western Central Christian foundations and includes Martin Luther’s 95 Theses, and the papal encyclicals of Popes John Paul II and Pope Francis. Written for intellectually inquiring students and educators and designed to be used with the second volume of the same name, Religion and Ethics Today is well-suited to introductory religious survey courses, classes on comparative religion, and any course that deals with theology, ethics, or the philosophy of religion.
