So much of what we argue about is entirely, usually, worth it. But how do we do so while actually coming from a foundation of moral ethics. What does the term moral ethics even mean?
Dr. David P Gushee is Distinguished University Professor of Christian Ethics and Director of the Center for Theology and Public Life at Mercer University, where he has served for eleven years.
Widely regarded as one of the world's leading Christian ethicists, he is the author, co-author, editor or co-editor of 22 books and hundreds of articles in his field, including Righteous Gentiles of the Holocaust, Kingdom Ethics, The Sacredness of Human Life, Evangelical Ethics, A Letter to My Anxious Christian Friends, Still Christian, and the forthcoming Moral Leadership for a Divided Age: Fourteen People Who Dared to Change Our World.
Dr Gushee was elected by his peers to serve as the current President of the American Academy of Religion and the immediate Past-President of the Society of Christian Ethics, a very rare combination for any religion scholar.
