       The subject of ethics has always been of fundamental importance for thoughtful Christians, but it has become even more significant in recent years, with the recognition of the pluralism and post-Christian context of contemporary society. In this book, Dennis Hollinger surveys several different approaches to ethics, considers the most critical issues facing Christians today, and suggests that any viable perspective must be rooted in a Christian worldview.

Choosing the Good begins with a survey of the ethical approaches that have been adopted by secular and Christian ethicists. Beyond the common consequentialist and principle-oriented perspectives, an alternative character/virtue approach has recently found wide acceptance, particularly in the work of Alasdair McIntyre and Stanley Hauerwas. Hollinger provides a critical analysis of these views and suggest that they overlook a critical element, which is the basis found in a uniquely Christian worldview.

Next, Hollinger reflects on the application of Christian ethics in what he calls the 'complex world' of contemporary pluralism and postmodernism. He examines the complexities of secular society and how those complexities affect Christian ethics. He then explores the factors that influence how Christians make ethical decisions, including Scripture and empirical judgment. Finally, he surveys the questions of justice, pluralism, and Christian influence in the secular world.

This volume has grown out of Hollinger's many years of experience in both academic and local church settings. His work is unique in that it surveys common approaches to ethics as well as contemporary issues of critical importance. Sure to find widespread use as a text in colleges and seminaries, it will also provide Christian lay readers with an excellent analysis of the subject.
