A Conversational Approach to Moral Dilemmas

Talking About Ethics provides students with all of the tools necessary to develop a coherent approach to ethical decision making.  The authors demonstrate how various moral 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 models 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.
