Description

"No history of ethics, and in particular, a history of Christian ethics can be purely 'history'. Rather it is as it should be an argument about how we need to think in order to act well as Christians. We are quite fortunate to have Michael Banners book because it is an incisive contribution to this project.

Auteur

Dr Michael Banner is a Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge.
