About the Author

Robin Gill is the Michael Ramsay Professor of Modern Theology at the University of Kent, UK.


` . . . a valuable book for any student of ethics and theology.' * Review and Expositor *
An ingenious tour de force . . . an exemplary textbook which outshines its competitors past and present . . . Robin Gill has done much to reclaim for Christian ethics its proper place among the theological disciplines. * Professor Anthony Dyson *
This is an excellent blend of classical texts with modern writers yet tied together with the insightful critiques of a skilful ethicist . . . * Southwestern Journal of Theology *
The previous three editions of this book have become an indispensable source of information for students of Christian Ethics. Now the famed author has given us an expanded 4th edition with more than 100 pages of newer extracts and texts on post-colonialism, feminism, and inter-religious dialogues, mostly written by female scholars. [...] I recommend it to anyone who wishes to know more about Christian Ethics. -- Daniel Jeyaraj, Liverpool Hope University, UK * Theological Book Review *
