Gilbert C. Meilaender
Meilaender suggests that Christians should not try to develop an autonomous ethic; neither, however, need they deny the common ground that exists with those who stand in other traditions. He then discusses human nature as creaturely, sinful, and justified—using these categories to think about such topics as the relation of humans to their environment, the meaning of personhood, and the meaning of original sin.
“Meilaender has an unusual ability to treat complex topics with clarity, charm, and insight. In this book, he masterfully explores how certain central Christian themes must be held in tension together. He argues for a distinctively Christian ethics that is, nonetheless, open to general ethics.” — Theological Studies
“Present times are blessed with a number of readily accessible (easy to get and easy to read) books by rigorous academic authors who temporarily set aside their technical vocabulary to gift us with their insights. Faith and Faithfulness is such a book; it takes up and brilliantly answers questions a thoughtful but busy Christian nonphilosopher might have.” — New Oxford Review
