Virtues and Practices in the Christian Tradition

Christian Ethics after MacIntyre

Edited by Nancey Murphy, Brad J. Kallenberg, and Mark Theissen Nation

“The quality of these essays is very high and their importance in the ongoing dialogue between Catholic and Protestant moral philosophers and theologians is beyond doubt. Virtues and Practices in the Christian Tradition is an extraordinarily useful volume for those who work in ethics.” —David Solomon, H. P. and W. B. White Director of the Notre Dame Center for Ethics and Culture

Virtues and Practices in the Christian Tradition is a significant resource for those who teach Christian ethics in church-related colleges and universities.” —Michael G. Cartwright, University of Indianapolis

Contributors to _Virtues and Practices in the Christian Tradition _use Alasdair MacIntyre’s work as a methodological guide for doing ethics in the Christian tradition. These essays are grouped in three sections: descriptions of MacIntyre’s approach to ethics as developed in After Virtue, reflections on the moral issues that come to the fore when viewing the Christian tradition from a MacIntyrean perspective, and selected essays on family, homosexuality, abortion, pacifism, feminism, business ethics, medical ethics, and economic justice.

Gregory Jones, John Howard Yoder, Craig Dykstra, Rodney Clapp, Luke Timothy Johnson, Stanley Hauerwas, Grady Scott Davis, Tammy Williams, Michael Goldberg, William F.
