Talking about ethics tends to involve talking about what we should or, more often, shouldn't do. We talk about setting limits on actions that, for whatever reason, we think are either wrong or somehow harmful to ourselves or others. The aim off this book, however, is to explore Christian ethics within a wider, more positive framework – one that that views Christianity's moral resources as part of the good news that it proclaims to all creation.

Ethics, says Hovey, need not be characterized primarily by negative prohibitions, limits, and tiresome hand-wringing. Rather, it's about a joyful and worshipful way of living, which flows naturally out of the abundant goodness God’s life and character, as revealed in Jesus.

Craig Hovey is Associate Professor of Religion and Director of the Ashland Center for Nonviolence at Ashland University Ohio. He is the author of What Makes Us Moral? (SPCK, 2012) and Bearing True Witness: Truthfulness in Christian P...   (Eerdmans, 2011), and is co-editor of (Eerdmans, 2008).
