Christian ethics is born out of conflict. This statement refers to both the history of Christian ethics as an academic discipline and the ongoing call to pursue a faithful Christian life. Christian ethics thus brings us face to face with the conflicts and crises that inform our very being. In this course, we will examine issues such as climate change, violence, capitalism, racism, and sexism with the belief that they present challenging opportunities for critical engagement and transformation. We will reflect on what it means to respond to these challenges faithfully as practicing Christian ethicists and how we might account for those responses.
