The contemporary landscape of ethical and moral issues is one of confusion and cacophony. Theories of ethics are often presented as unresolvable dilemmas in our postmodern world. On the one hand, ethical relativism is deemed both descriptive and prescriptive; on the other hand, moral absolutism is foundational. In reality, other options exist. In this groundbreaking book, Craig Boyd traces the history of natural law morality starting with the Greeks, taking it to the Bible, and onward through church history. Boyd explains the theory while critiquing it with other theories on morality such as divine command theory, analytic ethics, sociobiology, and postmodernism. Boyd concludes that natural law morality provides the basis of human morality by recognizing universally known features of human nature.
