  • Humanity and the Global Future
    • Abstract: A PRESIDENTIAL ADDRESS IS AN ODD THING. ONE SIZE DOES not fit all. In my case, the reflections that follow are an apology for a specific way of thinking theologically and ethically. Responsibility, I have long argued, is the form of the moral life; the integrity of life before God is the moral norm and aim of life; and, finally, what I call theological humanism is the stance or perspective in Christian theological ethics. I have written a lot about the various elements of this approach to theological ethics, and they will reappear in these reflections. However, in what follows, I want to concentrate on the challenges encoded in the title of this essay, and I will also make an apology for ... Read More

  • Sacralization and Desacralization: Political Domination and Religious
           Interpretation
    • Abstract: “VENGEANCE IS MINE, SAITH THE LORD.” BIBLE READERS WILL no doubt be familiar with this saying, but even those of a secular persuasion will probably have come across it—as the motto, for example, of Leo Tolstoy’s marital novel Anna Karenina. It comes from the book of Deuteronomy (32:35) and is a passage in Moses’s settling of scores with a disobedient people, a terrible threat invoking harsh punishment and inexorable decline. We find the same saying in Paul’s Epistle to the Romans, where he quotes it while giving it his own twist: “Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God” (Rom 12:19). For many people today, both believers and nonbelievers, the original version simply sounds ... Read More

  • What Does It Mean to Be Human in the Aftermath of Mass Trauma and
           Violence?: Toward the Horizon of an Ethics of Care
    • Abstract: IN A WELL-KNOWN PASSAGE IN EICHMANN IN JERUSALEM, Hannah Arendt writes about the Nazi mass killer Adolf Eichmann, who was captured in Buenos Aires and tried for his Nazi crimes in Jerusalem: Eichmann was not Iago and not Macbeth . . . and nothing would have been farther from his mind than to determine, with Richard III, “to prove a villain.” . . . He merely, to put the matter colloquially, never realized what he was doing. . . . It was sheer thoughtlessness—something by no means identical with stupidity—that predisposed him to become one of the greatest criminals of that period. . . . That such . . . thoughtlessness can wreak more havoc than all the evil instincts taken together . . . was the lesson ... Read More

  • Francisco de Vitoria’s Moral Cosmopolitanism and Contemporary
           Catholic Social Teaching
    • Abstract: WHAT HAS FRANCISCO DE VITORIA, THE FAMOUS DOMINICAN of the sixteenth century, to tell us about cosmopolitanism? His name is not often mentioned in the histories of this idea; these are more focused on the Stoics and on Immanuel Kant.1 Nevertheless, the political and moral debates in sixteenth-century Spain occasioned by the “Conquest of America” were seminal. Tierney and Ruston have demonstrated the point with reference to the history of the idea of human rights.2 This essay attempts something similar for cosmopolitanism. Such inquiry is, of course, not merely a matter of the history of ideas; it also helps address contemporary issues. My thesis is that Vitoria, while upholding the legitimacy of local ... Read More

  • Rights versus Right Order: Two Theological Traditions of Justice and Their
           Implications for Christian Ethics and Pluralistic Polities
    • Abstract: RECENT RELIGIOUS REFLECTION ON THE NATURE OF JUSTICE divides into two reigning approaches. Much contemporary reflection reinforces liberal political thought by conceiving justice as tantamount to individual rights. Scholars such as John Witte Jr., Max Stackhouse, and Esther Reed have argued for strong compatibility between Christian ethics and modern accounts of natural human rights, often owing to a common commitment to human dignity.1 Scholars working out of Judaism, Islam, and other religious traditions have offered similar defenses of human rights.2 Wolterstorff’s path-breaking Justice leads this wave of scholarship, providing a vigorous theological apologia and biblical defense of inherent (i.e. ...

  • Ecumenical Ethics: Challenges to and Sources for a Common Moral Witness
    • Abstract: I begin by offering four reasons why attending to ecumenism matters for the field of Christian ethics. First, the topic is crucially relevant to the global future of Christian ethics. Etymologically speaking, ecumene refers to the whole of the inhabited world. The first seven church councils are called “ecumenical” because they were attended by bishops from across the known Christian world. This term has only, by extension, come to refer to the modern quest to restore the unity of Christians that has been compromised in the ensuing decades. Thus, a global account of Christian ethics will necessarily be ecumenical in the etymological sense. Such an account will also be ecumenical in the modern sense ... Read More

  • Confessing Race: Toward a Global Ecclesiology after Bonhoeffer and Du Bois
    • Abstract: The fact that today the “black Christ” of a young Negro poet is pitted against the “white Christ” reveals a destructive rift within the church of Jesus Christ.1 WRITING AS A REFUGEE IN NEW YORK IN THE SUMMER OF 1939, Dietrich Bonhoeffer uses W.E.B. Du Bois’s image of the “color line” to critique racial lines drawn between churches. The broader purview of Bonhoeffer’s essay, “Protestantism without Reformation,” places sociopolitical observations about the black church among American denominations into dialogue with German philosophical assumptions and ecclesial memory. His comments reveal that although a great deal of his deliberation during those two months is focused on an imminent return to Germany, he ... Read More

  • Ferguson and Baltimore according to Dr. King: How Competing
           Interpretations of King’s Legacy Frame the Public Discourse on Black
           Lives Matter
    • Abstract: THE AUGUST 2014 POLICE SHOOTING OF MICHAEL BROWN, AN unarmed, eighteen-year-old black male, in Ferguson, Missouri, sparked civil unrest, public protests, rioting, and national discussion as people debated whether the shooting was justified, a result of racism, indicative of a culture of police abuse of power, or some combination of the three. Eight months later, shortly after the Department of Justice released the findings of its investigation of policing practices in Ferguson, six police officers in Baltimore, Maryland, sent Freddie Gray Jr. on a “rough ride” in the back of a police prisoner transport van. The ride resulted in the severing of Gray’s spine, subsequently killing him on April 19. On the heels ... Read More

  • “The Fierce Urgency of Now”: The Ecological Legacy of
           King’s Social Ethics
    • Abstract: IN ONE OF MY FAVORITE ESSAYS, ANNIE DILLARD MEDITATES on a brief encounter with a wild weasel. She elegantly describes the characteristics of the creature that lives with a singleness of mind, dutiful to an instinctual, ferocious participation in each moment. “Living Like Weasels” begins with a story of a hunter who shot an eagle in flight. Upon retrieving and examining the body of the great bird, the hunter was surprised to find the skeletal remains of a weasel, firmly attached to the neck of the eagle. Dillard theorizes that at the moment the eagle swept in for the kill, the weasel turned, attacked, and refused to let go—even as it was carried off into the heavens. Dillard explores how encounters with the ... Read More

  • Hope, Courage, and Resistance during Climate Change: Insights from African
           American Economic Cooperative Practices
    • Abstract: BORN OUT OF NEED FOR INDEPENDENCE AND SURVIVAL, African American cooperatives created a space for participants to engage in tactics that helped to build the spiritual and communal resources of humility, hope, and courage and an ability to take risks in an uncertain future. Church communities and church members were often the organizers of economic cooperatives, and many contributed to the groundwork for the large-scale collective action seen at the height of the civil rights movement. Economic cooperatives may prove fruitful for all those concerned about ecological destruction by offering a concrete tactic of resistance. Pope Francis brought attention to and praised the important human, religious ... Read More

    • Abstract: IN LIGHT OF THE SOCIETY OF CHRISTIAN ETHICS’ TWENTY-First Century and 2020 Initiatives, several ad hoc committees and working groups have examined the fate and future of both the Society and the field of Christian ethics. The stated purposes of these initiatives and their correlative task forces were to think about a new era that is ostensibly different from the state of the discipline of Christian ethics and the demographics of the Society in the past. In effect, each initiative was charged with addressing the evolving needs of our field, particularly giving attention to our mission, membership, meeting, media, management, and mass appeal. There has also been considerable attention paid to our relevance in ... Read More

    • Abstract: In a world where racial identity can serve as a means to power or disempowerment, privilege or disadvantage, Christian prophetic speech can offer a corrective to subjugative realities. In Religio-Political Narratives in the United States: From Martin Luther King Jr. to Jeremiah Wright, Angela Sims, F. Douglas Powe Jr., and Johnny Bernard Hill attend to prophetic speech and its direct impact on the political through examining the politico-spiritual discourse and work of three storied black figureheads with roots in the black church: Martin Luther King Jr., Jeremiah Wright, and Barack Obama.

    • Abstract: Full disclosure: I am a contributing author to a companion volume edited by the same team on reading theology from the margins. As a Latino liberation theologian I am sympathetic to the overall project envisioned and realized by the two editors while still capable of offering a critical assessment of the completed project. From the outset, the editors are aware that a critical retrieval from the underside of history of the major figures in Western philosophical and Christian ethics is likely to offend many in the academic establishment, as evidenced by their use of Karl Popper in an epigraph: “If in this book harsh words are spoken about some of the greatest among the intellectual leaders of mankind, my ...

  • Beyond the Abortion Wars: A Way Forward for a New Generation by Charles C.
           Camosy (review)
    • Abstract: As the title Beyond the Abortion Wars suggests, Camosy seeks a new way to address abortion in the United States that moves past the binary divisions of “pro-life” and “pro-choice.” Based on his read of shifting public opinion, demographics, and interpretations of constitutional law, Camosy bypasses the question of whether our national abortion policy will change (he thinks it will) in order to focus on the question of what the new public policy ought to be (3). Camosy, a Catholic theologian, acknowledges early on that the argument he is putting forth is consistent with defined Catholic doctrine (6). Placing him solidly in the “pro-life” camp, many of the positions he seeks to defend and promote ... Read More

  • The Vice of Luxury: Economic Excess in a Consumer Age by David Cloutier

    • Abstract: Is my desire for granite countertops and matching stainless steel appliances in my kitchen problematic? Can one be an authentic follower of Jesus Christ while driving a Lexus? Should Christians purchase only organic milk, fruits, and vegetables even if they are more expensive than nonorganic alternatives? On what theo-ethical grounds would one begin to construct an answer to these questions? David Cloutier argues in The Vice of Luxury that it is not enough for Christians to address issues of poverty and economic inequalities without attention to the “disposition to luxury” that has become commonplace among middle-class and wealthy Americans. The argument proceeds in two parts. Part 1 sets up the ... Read More

  • Religious Ethics and Migration: Doing Justice to Undocumented Workers by

    • Abstract: Ilsup Ahn addresses the controverted issue of immigration, focusing on the plight of undocumented migrants. His theoretical discussions are decidedly Eurocentric, with substantial investment in explicating Jacques Derrida, Michel Foucault, Giorgio Agamben, and Jürgen Habermas, while his practical test cases are North American, as is his recourse to theologians in his closing chapter, so there is a hospitable cosmopolitan air to the work as a whole. Billing his work as “religious ethics,” and allowing that other religious traditions may approximate the concerns he expresses, Ahn writes as a Christian contributing to Christian ethics and political thought, looking to the Bible and contemporary theological ...

  • Beyond Apathy: A Theology for Bystanders by Elisabeth T. Vasko, and: The
           Limits of Hospitality by Jessica Wrobleski (review)
    • Abstract: At first glance it might seem as if these two books do not belong together since moving beyond apathy requires engaged action, and accepting the limits of hospitality focuses attention on how we step back from particular actions. However, both Vasko and Wrobleski challenge their readers to reconsider how interaction with other people, coupled with honest reflection, stretches the contours of our comfort zones, ultimately leading to conversion, a richer embrace of each other’s humanity, and discipleship practices. Together the works require the reader to grapple with how our apathy not only is culpable as a sin of omission but also functions as another form of inhospitality. In recognizing our various sins ...

  • Sacred Mountains: A Christian Ethical Approach to Mountaintop Removal by
           Andrew R. H. Thompson (review)
    • Abstract: In Sacred Mountains Andrew Thompson argues, drawing on the work of H. Richard Niebuhr and others, that a theocentric responsibility approach is the most adequate Christian ethical response to the practice of mountaintop removal coal mining (MTR) in Appalachia. To see why he turns to theocentrism, one must understand that, for Thompson, the most significant challenge that MTR and issues like it pose for ethics is not their severity or intransigence but their complexity. What concerns him most are the simplistic, dangerous, and divisive constructions of the debate that arise from unwarranted confidence in human perspectives. The task of the ethicist in addressing any controversy, in Thompson’s account, is to ... Read More

           (review)
    • Abstract: Dawn M. Nothwehr, OSF, and Willis Jenkins have written, so it seems, incommensurable books about the relation of religion to environmental problems. The central issue between them is whether or not it is possible to move from a theological tradition to fitting, ecologically responsible moral action. Nothwehr is quite confident that we can, and the first half of her Ecological Footprints: An Essential Franciscan Guide for Faith and Sustainable Living is, as the title suggests, a primer in Franciscan theology that moves toward a theology of sustainable living. After two opening chapters on scripture and the environment, the distinctly Franciscan quality of the guide really begins as Nothwehr surveys, over four ... Read More

  • Can War Be Just in the 21st Century? Ethicists Engage the Tradition ed. by
           Tobias Winright, Laurie Johnston (review)
    • Abstract: One of the most common complaints surrounding the just war tradition is, ironically, the antiquity of many of its arguments. The tradition has largely been built over the last millennium and a half on a number of interlocking assumptions, such as national sovereignty and the inherent limits of weapons, which have been called into question by the presence of nonstate actors, weapons that cannot be easily limited, and sovereigns whose power is dubious. Beyond this, recent scholarship has pointed out the ways in which just war reflections ignore issues of gender, race, and political inequity. In the face of so many challenges, are the categories of just war even workable, much less desirable? In this erudite ... Read More

           Myles Werntz (review)
    • Abstract: Arguments about the morality of violence are currently being reinvigorated by a diverse group of theologians who are considering these questions for a world in which the nation-state no longer provides the sole context for political reflection. Both Ted Smith and Myles Werntz have contributed to this budding conversation by reframing the way theological ethicists might approach questions of violence and war. In Weird John Brown, Ted Smith provides an engaging account of the violent abolitionist, examining the theological significance of John Brown’s raid on Harpers Ferry, Virginia. Smith uses Brown to question the capacity of ethics as a discipline to assess the significance of every phenomenon. ... Read More

  • Chinese Just War Ethics: Origin, Development, and Dissent ed. by
           Ping-Cheung Lo, Sumner B. Twiss (review)
    • Abstract: As Ping-Cheung Lo notes, Western stereotypes of Chinese culture and particularly of Confucian ethics have led many to describe ancient China as a place of peace and cooperation—a picture that is contrary to historical evidence (249). This new volume, edited by Lo and Sumner Twiss, offers an important corrective to that image. The contributing authors describe the moral attitudes toward war and peace taken by Chinese thinkers in several schools during the Warring States Period of 475–221 BCE (along with one later figure, the sixteenth-century neo-Confucian Wang Yangming). In particular, they focus on five traditions: military strategy, Confucianism, Daoism, Mohism, and legalism. The authors collectively ... Read More

  • The Vision of Catholic Social Thought: The Virtue of Solidarity and the

    • Abstract: In this short, clearly written book, Meghan Clark offers an argument for seeing Catholic social thought (CST) not through its oft-listed principles but through its vision of the human person and its core virtue: solidarity. Against the protests of left and right, she presents CST as linked to essential Catholic theological claims and radical in its insistence that we are all responsible for promoting the human rights of neighbors near and far. Christians on the left sometimes view CST as well-intentioned but moderate, lacking an analysis of power, and uninspired. Better to read the memoir of an activist or the tract of a radical theologian than to fall asleep over another encyclical on the common ... Read More
