The Moral Bond of Community

Justice and Discourse in Christian Morality

Comprehensive in its approach yet written in plain language, The Moral Bond of Community offers a biblically-based concept of Christian justice that can be applied to moral questions in everyday life.

Brady examines four forms of Christian moral discourse — narrative, prophetic, ethical, and policy — and shows how each contributes to a fuller understanding of Christian morality.

Reviews

"This is perhaps the most engaging and lucid introduction to Christian ethics available today. . . . This is more than an excellent introduction. Advanced students and scholars may read it with profit, and perhaps learn from its unpretentious contemporary debates in Christian ethics."—Theological Book Review

"An accessible, brief, and thoughtful introduction to Christian moral thinking about justice, especially (but not exclusively) as that thinking happens within the Catholic tradition. It will prove useful for early college courses in Christian ethics."—Review of Politics

Endorsements

"This is an outstanding book, a comprehensive introduction to Christian ethics that makes its own statement about what it means to live a Christian life. It moves step by step from Biblical faith to the hard questions about contemporary life, showing us how to make the connections for ourselves."—Robin W. Lovin, dean, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University

"Strikes a perfect balance between theoretical depth and practical insight. Dr. Brady's work is an excellent introduction to Christian ethics for undergraduate students and adult learners."—Michael J. Schuck, associate professor of Christian ethics, Loyola University of Chicago
