The content that students encounter in a seminary education, and in daily life, is recognized as one braided strand rather than separate parts, when we consider the questions that Christians ask, "what shall we do? How shall we live?" These questions are the core questions of Christian Ethics. They take a unique form in the Christian life, where we make daily efforts to integrate all of our learning, in faithfulness to our core convictions, in daily life. In this introductory Christian Ethics course we will begin an engagement with those questions through analysis of the development and practice of social and theological ethics, in order to explore the uniqueness of Christian Ethics in response to contemporary issues.
