  • Exorcising Democracy: The Theopolitical Challenge of Black Power
    • Abstract: BLACK RADICAL THOUGHT HAS CONSISTENTLY GENERATED penetrating critiques of democracy in America. Yet these critiques are almost wholly ignored by dominant strands of political theory—most notably, political liberalism.1 In response, Charles Mills calls for an end to the segregation of black political thought from "mainstream" political theory.2 He argues that there is an important set of shared concerns. However, these shared concerns cannot be recognized let alone articulated if racism in North America, which has been judicially backed, morally and theoretically rationalized, and structurally institutionalized, is treated as an anomaly rather than as basic to the construction of the American body politic. When ... Read More

  • Rioting as Flourishing' Reconsidering Virtue Ethics in Times of Civil
           Unrest
    • Abstract: THE AUGUST 2014 POLICE SHOOTING OF MICHAEL BROWN, AN unarmed black teenager, triggered weeks of street protests in Ferguson, Missouri. Law enforcement personnel confronted the demonstrators with riot gear, tear gas, and rubber bullets. Three months later, when a grand jury decided not to indict the police officer who had shot Brown, even fiercer protests erupted. Rioting protesters looted businesses and set buildings and vehicles on fire.1 Public commentary on the rioting was mixed, with some voices condemning the civil unrest while others called attention to the despair and structural inequalities provoking the riots.2 In a Democracy Now interview taped the day after the announcement of the grand jury decision ...

  • Resisting the Devil's Instruments: Early Modern Resistance Theory for Late
           Modern Times
    • Abstract: THE GOD OF THE EARLY MODERN REFORMED TRADITION HAS sometimes been described as a Leviathan: all-powerful, unaccountable, and utterly free in his dealings with humanity. His chief end is the increase of his own glory. His covenants are made apart from any prior recognition of goodness or merit, depending solely on his sovereign whim. The political theorist Carl Schmitt, in one of his lesser-known works, went so far as to link the rise of covenant theology in the Reformed tradition with the political absolutism of Thomas Hobbes's famously controversial treatise Leviathan. According to Schmitt—who is not alone in this judgment—what the early modern absolutists and the early modern Calvinists share is a commitment to ... Read More

  • Can Love Walk the Battlefield' A Reply to Nigel Biggar
    • Abstract: IN HIS 2012 AUTOBIOGRAPHY, AMERICAN SNIPER, CHRIS KYLE offers a firsthand account of his experiences during the Iraq War.1 A member of US Navy SEAL Team 3, Kyle is widely recognized as the most lethal sniper in US military history, with more than 150 confirmed kills. Late in his book Kyle turns his attention to how war affected him personally:I'M NOT THE SAME GUY I WAS WHEN I FIRST WENT TO WAR.No one is. Before you're in combat, you have this innocence about you. Then, all of a sudden, you see this whole other side of life.I don't regret any of it. I'd do it again. At the same time, war definitely changes you.You embrace death.As a SEAL, you go to the Dark Side. You're immersed in it. Continually going to war, you ... Read More

  • Exploitative Labor, Victimized Families, and the Promise of the Sabbath
    • Abstract: IN JULY OF 2015 DEBRA HARRELL, A MCDONALD'S EMPLOYEE, was arrested for allowing her nine-year-old daughter to play at the park while Harrell was at work. The case received substantial news coverage at the time as one in a string of incidents that brought questions of parental supervision and the intervention of authorities into the public eye. While most commentators focused on the question of appropriate state interference with parenting decisions, many also noted the less-than-ideal parenting choices forced on low-wage workers in the contemporary US economy.1 A McDonald's hourly wage is hardly sufficient to pay for childcare, and not all workers have reliable family members who are willing or able to help. Unlike ... Read More

  • Raising Our Kids: Social and Theological Accounts of Child-Rearing amid
           Inequality and Mass Incarceration
    • Abstract: WITH THE 2015 PUBLICATION OF ROBERT PUTNAM'S OUR KIDS, new attention has been directed to the inequalities faced by American children. Putnam identifies a threefold threat from the growing opportunity gap among our youth: threats to our economy, democracy, and values.1 He maintains that we ignore the plight of poor children, and this imposes economic burdens on the entire society. At the same time, class differences in political voice delegitimize democracy and exacerbate alienation. Finally, Putnam warns about the erosion of our values, undermining the professed belief in equal worth and opportunity.

  • The Priority of the Affections over the Emotions: Gustafson, Aquinas, and
           an Edwardsean Critique
    • Abstract: IN HIS SEMINAL ETHICS FROM A THEOCENTRIC PERSPECTIVE, James M. Gustafson writes that his use of the term "affectivity" "includes 'senses,' attitudes, dispositions, and more particular affections or emotions."1 In this essay, I am particularly interested in that last component of his statement on affectivity, the association between affections and emotions. "As I use the term," Gustafson writes, "it [affections] refers to emotion."2 The association of affection with emotion is not unique to Gustafson, although the way he associates both terms, particularly through his interpretation of Jonathan Edwards, has certainly been influential in discussions on the emotions in contemporary religious and theological ethics.3 ...

  • Toward a Christian Virtue Account of Moral Luck
    • Abstract: WITH ATTENTION TO PARTICULARITY AND DIFFERENCE VERY much on the rise in Christian theology, ethicists lack a framework to describe the impact of particular life circumstances on a person's pursuit of virtue. Morally significant life circumstances—including, among others, gender, ethnic or racial identity, sexual identity, and wealth and poverty—affect moral development as they influence one's self-image, treatment by others, and opportunities for action within society. Christian ethicists acknowledge this, tacitly or explicitly, in work on privilege and oppression but have yet to explore how privilege and oppression are linked in their impacts on the virtuous life. Philosophers refer to this reality as moral luck.I ... Read More

  • Personal Responsibility in the Face of Social Evils: Transcendentalist
           Debates Revisited
    • Abstract: WHEN MARTIN VAN BUREN LOST THE 1840 PRESIDENTIAL election to William Henry Harrison, he is said to have blamed Orestes Brown-son.1 Van Buren had become widely unpopular during his presidency due to the financial panic of 1837, which resulted in the worst economic depression in the young nation's history. Harrison ran as a war hero and man of the people—the "log cabin and hard cider" candidate of change from the Wild West. Never mind that he came from a family of wealthy planters in Virginia while Van Buren's father was a tavern keeper. The Whigs managed to depict Van Buren as a political elite living a life of luxury at the public's expense. Harrison's basic campaign strategy was to avoid discussion of difficult ... Read More

  • Moral Injury, Feminist and Womanist Ethics, and Tainted Legacies
    • Abstract: IN JANUARY 2015 THE MENNONITE CHURCH USA OFFICIALLY documented widespread sexual abuse perpetrated for years by its best-known theologian, John Howard Yoder, a leading theorist of pacifism.1 Yoder's violence against women ignited vigorous debate about the status of his theological legacy. Yoder scholars condemned his behavior but often insisted on the enduring value of his theology. The women he violated, however, identified a different problem: the harm Yoder caused lives on through the continuing acclaim of his theology. For them, the issue is not how to reconcile a pacifist's theory with his violent actions but how to prevent past trauma from being carried into the present.Far from being an isolated Mennonite or ...

  • Egalitarian Liberalism Revisited: On the Meaning and Justification of
           Social Justice by Per Sundman (review)
    • Abstract: Across a range of contemporary disciplines, discussions about justice abound. Despite the prevalence of these discussions, however, there is little consensus about what justice is and whether (and, if so, how) appeals to it should be made. Moreover, if the interconnectedness and pluralism that obtain in our rapidly globalizing world are taken seriously, concerns about the content, meaning, and use of justice are amplified. Against this backdrop, Per Sundman aims to explicate and evaluate one particular form of justice: egalitarian liberalism. On his definition, egalitarian liberalism is "best understood as a triune conjunction of equality of opportunity, desert and self-ownership" (10). Over the course of eight ... Read More

  • Why People Matter: A Christian Engagement with Rival Views of Human
           Significance ed. by John F. Kilner (review)
    • Abstract: Although Why People Matter does not use the word, it is an apologetic for the Christian faith and ethical tradition. Its argument begins with a moral intuition that the authors take to be near universal: "people matter." If Christian theological and ethical thought can be shown to explain and shore up the notion that "people matter" better than other ethical outlooks—and the authors believe it can—then the work will have (1) established a proper moral foundation for holding and acting on the conviction that people matter and (2) provided a reasoned argument for why Christianity as a fundamental belief system is better and truer than the other ethical systems examined.The text of Why People Matter is accessible and ...

  • Friends and Other Strangers: Studies in Religion, Ethics, and Culture by
           Richard B. Miller (review)
    • Abstract: In his studies on casuistry, war and peace, pediatric ethics, and other occasional topics Richard B. Miller has for some time been a leading source of creative impulses in the field of religious ethics, so it is a welcome event to have this volume organizing past essays of his into a thematically cohesive presentation. His book sets out a vision of the character and concerns of religious ethics that helps counter critics, such as Stanley Hauerwas, who have expressed skepticism about the field.The governing conception of Friends and Other Strangers is that the study of religious ethics is properly shaped by attending to how "our lives ineluctably oscillate between experiences of intimacy and otherness" (5). ...

  • Hope for Common Ground: Mediating the Personal and the Political in a
           Divided Church by Julie Hanlon Rubio (review)
    • Abstract: Julie Hanlon Rubio wrote Hope for Common Ground to address divisions over ethical and political issues within the Catholic Church. Rubio writes in a spirit of hope, affirming that it is possible for Catholics to find common ground by drawing on resources within their tradition and within themselves. She proposes that "the potential for seeing and developing common ground is particularly strong if we focus on what can be done in the 'local' sphere—that is, in the space between" the personal and the political (xvii). Localized focus is recommended by the Catholic principle of subsidiarity, which means working on social problems from the bottom up through the small- and medium-sized groups that matter greatly for ...

  • The Cosmic Common Good: Religious Grounds for Ecological Ethics by Daniel
           P. Scheid (review)
    • Abstract: Published shortly after the first encyclical to focus on the environment (Pope Francis's Laudato Si'), Daniel Scheid's first book is a significant advance in Christian ethics and religious ecology. Scheid argues that resources in Catholic social thought and other religious traditions can move one to an appreciation of a common good that includes the "more than human world" (xiv). In particular, he "aim[s] (1) to extend Catholic social thought ecologically, and (2) to extend Catholic ecological ethics comparatively" (8).The argument begins by broadening the notion of the common good into a "Catholic cosmic common good," which "emphasizes the centrality of God, the goodness of creation, and humanity's dignified and ...

  • Ethics as a Work of Charity: Thomas Aquinas and Pagan Virtue by David
           Decosimo (review)
    • Abstract: If "debeo distinguere" represents the programmatic scholarly agenda for "prophetic Thomism," over against the more mystical narrative "exitus et reditus" itinerary of Dionysian Augustinianism, David Decosmio should be considered a virtuous practitioner of this Thomistic craft in the domain of political ethics. To put it more accurately, Decosimo provides a complex, lucid account of his reading of Thomas as one who tutors Christians and especially Christian ethicists through "fraternal correction" in what it means to provide a generous, charitable account of "pagan virtue" via the making of distinctions. For Decosimo the word "pagan" refers to non-Christian "outsiders"—that is, "all those without charity" (11). ... Read More

In the first section of the book, called "Locations" (11–53), the contributors put concepts of sustainability into dialog with concerns of socioeconomic, gender, and racial justice from contexts as diverse as Europe, East Asia, India, Africa, and North America. The various locations share common themes, such as the importance of deep meanings of the term "sustainability," the priority of education and advocacy, the resource and energy challenges behind structures of injustice, and the primary role of economics. Yet distinctive emphases ... Read More

In this set of constructive essays, contributors from each of these veins of Christianity explore the relationship between Christianity and democracy from their vantage point. Drawing together political theologians, ethicists, and historical theologians, the volume creates an encounter between "East" and "West" that addresses some critical questions facing the whole of Christianity.The first section of essays details the post-Communist situation for Orthodox churches and how they wrestle with traditions of human rights. These essays set ... Read More

  • The Place of Imagination: Wendell Berry and the Poetics of Community,
           Affection, and Identity by Joseph R. Wiebe (review)
    • Abstract: The Place of Imagination is an artful narration of Wendell Berry's poetics focused distinctively on his works of fiction. Moralists concerned about issues of land use or racialization could commend or criticize "what" they assume Berry's stories (re)present—nostalgia or some abstract, principial program. But Joseph Wiebe ventures a thesis about "how" Berry's imaginary Port William community discloses the nature of good, real-world community. Understanding how Berry's poetics reflect his real-world moral imagination clarifies what we may learn from his fiction. So, in part 1, Wiebe traces Berry's journey of local adaptation, through which he developed a moral imagination and discovered the agonizing details of his ... Read More

  • Methodist Morals: Social Principles in the Public Church's Witness by
           Darryl W. Stephens (review)
    • Abstract: Darryl W. Stephens's Methodist Morals presents a historical, theological, and ethical analysis of a particular form of social witness in the United Methodist Church (UMC): the Social Principles. Stephens mainly argues that the Social Principles are not only an institutionalized "document" on contemporary social issues but also an "ongoing moral discourse" within a set of democratic, legislative, and participatory practices of the UMC as a "moral community" (6–8). This ongoing moral discourse illustrates the public church as an authentic social witness in the world and the process of moral formation of its members.Stephens's case study of the public church proceeds in three parts. The first part (chapters 1–3) ... Read More

  • The Seductiveness of Virtue: Abraham Joshua Heschel and John Paul II on
           Morality and Personal Fulfillment by John J. Fitzgerald (review)
    • Abstract: The Seductiveness of Virtue offers a close study of the twentieth-century Polish-American rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, and the first Polish pope, St. John Paul II, on the relationship between being good and being happy. Overall the book advances the conversation on the meaning and continued relevance of virtue in contemporary ethics, though its eagerness to build bridges across competing religious and philosophical traditions opens the argument to both methodological and substantive criticisms.Fitzgerald divides the book into an introduction and four chapters. Chapter 1, "The Meaning of Our Question," establishes the definitions of concepts that Fitzgerald addresses throughout the rest his argument, including ... Read More

  • Transformed Lives: Making Sense of Atonement Today by Cynthia S. W.
           Crysdale (review)
    • Abstract: Cynthia Crysdale aims to show how atonement can have meaning for modern and postmodern Christians who reject the idea that God wills Jesus's violent death. She starts with stories of people who were estranged from God but have been given grace to love God anew. Their subsequent lives are not perfect and involve multiple deaths of the old self and resurrections into the new. Yet there is a reconciliation not present beforehand: not a change in God, who has always loved us, but a change in us. Crysdale seeks to navigate between two undesirable positions: a penal substitutionary doctrine of the atonement, which she thinks posits a violent God, or a rejection of the idea of atonement altogether. She sees atonement as ... Read More

  • Not by Nature but by Grace: Forming Families through Adoption by Gilbert

    • Abstract: I was adopted as an infant through a Catholic Charities office in 1961, and just three years ago, thanks to an online DNA analysis service, I met both of my biological parents, with whom I have an ongoing, loving relationship. So my keen interest in this book and its topic is more than just theological curiosity. It includes personal and emotional dimensions, as I'm sure it will for many readers.This book is an attempt to understand modern adoptive practices from a primarily Christian/Catholic perspective, with helpful allusions to the beliefs and practices of the other Abrahamic faiths. Overall, I believe the book succeeds in presenting a solid theological foundation for adoption in general and, more specifically ... Read More

  • On Secular Governance: Lutheran Perspectives on Contemporary Legal Issues

They point out that in discussions between the fields of religion and law to date, "Jewish, Muslim, Catholic, and Reformed perspectives have largely dominated" (1). In bringing Lutheran perspectives to questions of law and religion, this collection begins an important task of retrieving a theological perspective on law that was integral for the formation of modern legal thought but has been largely absent from contemporary discussions of law and religion.The strength of this collection of essays lies in the breadth of ...

  • Just Revolution: A Christian Ethic of Political Resistance and Social
           Transformation by Anna Floerke Scheid (review)
    • Abstract: Anna Floerke Scheid argues that the Christian just war and just peacemaking ethical traditions lack a comprehensive ethic for revolutionary nonviolent activity and warfare. She proposes to fill this lacuna through a theological exploration of what constitutes a just revolution. While Scheid maintains a consistent preference for nonviolent resistance against tyranny, she remains open to the possibility of revolutionary warfare.The author articulates four stages of a just revolution. The first stage is jus ante, nonviolent resistance against a tyrannical government. Here the opposition develops a democratic and revolutionary vision of society that respects human rights, models that vision within its organizations ... Read More

  • Ethics and the Elderly: The Challenge of Long-Term Care by Sarah M. Moses,
           and: Loving Later Life: An Ethics of Aging by Frits de Lange (review)
    • Abstract: Today many women and men live beyond the so-called third age of life and enter their eighties, the "fourth age," during which the toll of time and the growing incidence of life-limiting conditions wear down even the best-preserved of the human species. Debilitating disease and normal ebbing of human function become more concentrated in this demographic bubble. As people enter their eighties, their world tends to narrow both physically and mentally, creating a need for increasing care. Often the elderly are rendered passive and dependent, forced to cede both autonomy and dignity. They become objects with little voice, requiring greater care and increasing cash. Likewise, as the baby boom generation enters this ... Read More
