Summary
Mark Ryan argues that, habituated by modern moral theories such as consequentialism and deontology, we too often assume that Christian ethics makes no claim on the character of its students and teachers. It is rather like yet another department store within the shopping mall of ideas and ideologies to which advanced education provides access. By arguing that theological ethics is an activity by nature "political," the author endeavors to show us that to do Christian ethics is to be habituated into ways of talking and seeing that put us on a path toward the good. The author thus affirms the claim that theological ethics is a life-changing practice. This book endeavors to display a philosophical basis for this claim, by articulating the political character of practical reason. Through conversation with G. E. M. Anscombe, Charles Taylor, Stanley Hauerwas, Alasdair MacIntyre, and Jeffrey Stout, Ryan attempts to provide an account of practical reasoning that enables us to rightly conceive theological ethics as a discipline that ought to change our lives
