Talking about Ethics


A tough set of subjects in a surprisingly conversational tone. . . .

Talking About Ethics

Michael S. Jones, Mark J. Farnham, and David L. Saxon. Talking about Ethics: A Conversational Approach to Moral Dilemmas. 384p., $29.99, Kregel Academic.

Talking about Ethics provides the reader with all of the tools necessary to develop a coherent approach to ethical decision-making. Using the tools of ethical theory, the authors show how these theories play out in relation to a wide variety of ethical questions using an accessible dialogue format. The chapters follow three college students as they discuss today’s most important ethical issues with their families and friends, including:

  • Immigration
  • Capital punishment
  • Legalization of narcotics
  • Abortion
  • Premarital sex
  • Reproductive technologies
  • Gender identity
  • The environment, and many more

The engaging dialogue format illustrates how these topics often take shape in the real world, and model critical thinking and Christian ethical decision-making. Study aids in each chapter include overviews, sidebars, reflection questions, glossaries, and recommended reading. Ideal as a textbook for undergraduate ethics courses, it is also accessible enough for high school classes and personal study.
