Joined-up Life by Andrew Cameron

imageJoined-up Life┬áprovides a Christian framework for ethics. It encourages ethical thinking rather than quick or simplistic answers. It’s readable and thought-provoking. It provides an overview of approaches to ethics before suggesting a framework for considering a topic from the perspectives of creation, redemption, new creation, God’s character and God’s commands. It then applies the framework to character qualities, different life circumstances and then some thorny issues. The rationale for the order of these last three is that this sort of God-centred thoughtfulness should be impacting our everyday life and not just be pulled out for the special occasions when we have to make a major decision. The chapter on singleness was probably the best thing I have read on singleness (both in theological reflection and pastoral sensitivity).
