Journal of Religious Ethics 5 (1):9 - 37 (1977)

The author works out a streamlined version of Ralph Potter's analytical scheme for portraying the main elements involved in justifying a policy decision. He then uses the resulting model to illustrate the complexities of reasoning about social policy, and builds a case for rooting religious social ethics in the streamlined model itself, with particular emphasis on the social theory dimension in the model, rather than in the analytical philosophical ethics part of the model alone.
