Strange Virtues: Ethics in Multicultural World Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Theologian and veteran missionary Bernard Adeney addresses in-depth what may be the stickiest crosscultural communication problem of our day: differing approaches to morality. In this comprehensive treatment, he considers ethics across cultures, addresses the ethical import of other religions and gender relations, explores how the Bible and culture interact to produce ethical stances, and includes particular case studies. Strange Virtues will benefit not only missionaries, ethicists and students, but all Christians who want to better understand their neighbors here at home.

Synopsis:

Strange Virtues is one of the first books to comprehensively consider ethics across cultures, addressing the ethical import of other religions and gender relations, exploring how the Bible and culture interact to produce ethical stances, and examining such particular case studies as bribery. It will be invaluable not only for missionaries, ethicists and students, but for all Christians who want to better understand neighbors right here at home.
