This course will introduce students to the theological foundations of Christian ethics in a way that equips them to consider diverse perspectives and practices of faithful living that are shaped and patterned by the teachings of Jesus Christ and as they have developed over time through the witness of the Christian Church. While certainly not exhaustive in scope, this course will explore the following themes: the sources and history of Christian ethics; poverty and income equality; urban degradation; immigration; homosexuality and sexual identity; war, nonviolence, and just peacemaking; racism; public education and community formation.
