    Can a Child Die a Good Death? Child Ethics and Mortality.Robyn Boeré - 2020 - Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics 40 (1):77-91.
    Jeffrey P. Bishop argues that contemporary understandings of the good death are predicated on conscious choice. This focus on rational conscious choice as the primary criterion has troubling implications for how we evaluate the death of children, whose capacity for autonomy is unclear. In this essay, I will explore ways in which the death of children creates silences, arising most notably from our ideas about the good death. In contrast, I will argue for a different model of a good death (...)

    The Virtue of Justice and the Justice of Institutions.Ryan Darr - 2020 - Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics 40 (1):3-20.
    Justice, according to Thomas Aquinas, is a personal virtue. Modern theorists, by contrast, generally treat justice as a virtue of social institutions. Jean Porter rightly argues that both perspectives are necessary. But how should we conceive the relationship between the virtue of justice and the justice of institutions? I address this question by drawing from Aquinas’s account of the role of the convention of money in mediating relations of just exchange. Developing Aquinas’s account, I defend two conclusions and raise one (...)

  9. Pharmaceutical Memory Modification and Christianity’s “Dangerous” Memory.Stephanie C. Edwards - 2020 - Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics 40 (1):93-108.
    Pharmaceutical memory modification is the use of a drug to dampen, or eliminate completely, memories of traumatic experience. While standard therapeutic treatments, even those including intense pharmaceuticals, can potentially offer individual biomedical healing, they are missing an essential perspective offered by Christian bioethics: re/incorporation of individuals and traumatic memories into communities that confront and reinterpret suffering. This paper is specifically grounded in Christian ethics, engaging womanist understandings of Incarnational, embodied personhood, and Johann Baptist Metz’s “dangerous memory.” It develops an ethical (...)

    Professional Ethics and the Recovery of Virtue.Elisabeth Rain Kincaid - 2020 - Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics 40 (1):21-37.
    In my paper I argue that developments within legal ethics—specifically a return to emphasizing the importance of precepts for governing communities capable of forming virtue and for protecting the vulnerable—can contribute to discussions in theological ethics regarding the rule of precepts for the church’s formation of its members in virtue. This concern is especially timely given the recent sex abuse scandals in Protestant and Catholic churches, which have raised wide-spread concerns about the capacity of churches to form character and protect (...)

  15. The Power of Hope in the Work of Justice.James W. McCarty - 2020 - Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics 40 (1):39-57.
    This essay engages Miguel De La Torre’s proposal to “embrace hopelessness” and argues that Christians should hold on to hope. The author places De La Torre’s argument in conversation with others who have written on hope and hopelessness and excavates two main weaknesses in his argument: first, a definition of hope that does not stand up to a review of the literature on the topic, especially as advocated by scholars from oppressed communities, and, second, a proposal for hopelessness that does (...)

  16. The Rich Young Ruler and Christian Ethics.Gerald McKenny - 2020 - Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics 40 (1):59-76.
    In Christian ethics the Gospel story of the encounter of a rich young ruler with Jesus has been interpreted in two major ways: one that treats Jesus’ directive to the ruler as a counsel that goes beyond the commandments the ruler claims to have kept, and another that treats the directive as contained in the commandments and exposing his failure to keep them. I reconstruct Calvin’s version of the second interpretation, contrast it with Aquinas’s version of the first, and point (...)

  21. Reproductive Justice Re-Constructs Christian Ethics of Work.Jeremy Posadas - 2020 - Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics 40 (1):109-126.
    This essay proposes an anti-work Christian ethics of work: that is, an ethics of work that breaks Christianity’s complicity with capitalism’s death-dealing ideology of work. Taking up feminist anti-work theory’s call to the “refusal of work,” the essay first clarifies the relationship between work and care within the capitalist work-system. It then argues that the activist framework known as reproductive justice—once it is expanded to the whole sphere of social reproduction—offers a moral norm adequate for an anti-work Christian ethics of (...)

    Agroecology and Natural Law.Matthew Philipp Whelan - 2020 - Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics 40 (1):127-144.
    This paper engages agroecology by drawing on natural law reflection. Agroecology considers the agricultural field as an ecosystem, designing and managing agriculture on this basis. My purpose is to show how certain strands of natural law reflection offer important tools for theological and ethical engagement with this approach to agriculture. More specifically, I argue that while agroecology can help concretize natural law’s claims about natural order, natural law can help further develop agroecological insights about ecological order and its implications for (...)

    Holy Deviance: Christianity, Race, and Class in the Opioid Crisis.Todd Whitmore - 2020 - Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics 40 (1):145-162.
    In recent years, public discourse has largely embraced the idea that persons with addictions have a “brain disease,” and ought to be treated medically rather than judicially. This article first argues that this social shift is mostly the result of middle- and upper-class whites being among the addicted. The medical language is deployed so that such persons avoid the stigma of “deviance” commonly linked to addiction. Second, this article argues for a Christian “holy deviance,” whereby Christians become deviant by going (...)
