Christ-Shaped Moral Philosophy and the Triviality of 20th Century 'Christian Ethics'.

Evangelical Philosophical Society: The Christ - Shaped Philosophy Project (2014)

Christian moral philosophy is a distinctive kind of moral philosophy owing to the special role it assigns to God in Christ. Much contemporary 'Christian ethics' focuses on semantic, modal, conceptual and epistemological issues. This may be helpful but it omits the distinctive focus of Christian moral philosophy: the human condition in a morally ordered universe and the redemptive work of jesus Christ as a response to that predicament. Christian moral philosophers should seek to remedy that neglect.
