Dirty Hands: Christian Ethics in a Morally Ambiguous World

Dirty Hands: Christian Ethics in a Morally Ambiguous WorldDirty Hands: Christian Ethics in a Morally Ambiguous World
How can one make the ethical and "right" decision in a deeply ambiguous moral world? Baker-Fletcher's basic introduction to Christian Ethics—with attitude—examines the fundamental ethical problems of moral decision-making, in which knowledge will always be unsure, time short, decisions ambiguous, and consequences multiple and unforseeable.

Baker-Fletcher treats ethics as engagement, getting one's hand's "dirty with life." He employs a journey motif in order to aid readers in plotting their own "moralscape" (the fundamental commitments that affect their own decisions).
