War and conscience in America by Edward Le Roy Long( Book )

4 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is written to help all of us to think more searchingly about the agonizing problems raised by war -- and about the moral issues confronting young men who face military service. While the discussion does not ignore questions of political consequence, it directs attention mainly to the problems of individual conscience in confronting alternatives of judgment, decision, and opinion, as well as alternatives of action, available under national policy. With respect to the moral issues its purpose is more to examine than to advocate, more to explain than to exhort. It ends, however, with a plea for the nation to expand the freedom available to men of many convictions so that they may all relate constructively to the needs of these times and to one another in the midst of rending diversities. - Introduction

To liberate and redeem : moral reflections on the biblical narrative by Edward Le Roy Long( Book )

3 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In To Liberate and Redeem, scholar Edward LeRoy Long, Jr. surveys the biblical narrative - setting the context by beginning with the oppression of Israel's enslavement and the Exodus liberation, then looking back to the Creation and forward to Christ, Paul, and the early church. The book looks at how the unfolding drama of the Bible is marked by those who need liberation because they are trapped in oppressive structures and those who, once freed, must faithfully construct communities of redemption so as not to become oppressors themselves. From this basis Long explores how present-day moral decisions can be informed by studying the ways in which our biblical forebears wrestled with concerns similar to our own while standing in faithful responsiveness to God.--From publisher's description

Applied Christian ethics : foundations, economic justice, and politics( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Applied Christian Ethics addresses selected themes in Christian social ethics. The book is divided in three parts. In the first section, "Foundation," several contributors reveal their Christian realist roots and discuss the prophetic origins and multifarious agenda of social ethics. Thus, the names of Reinhold Niebuhr and Paul Tillich come up frequently. In the second section, "Economics and Justice," the focus turns to the different levels at which economics has significance for social justice. These chapters discuss fair housing at the local level, the dialogue between Christians and Native Americans over property rights at the regional and national levels, and trade and international organization. In the third and final section, "Politics, War, and Peacemaking," the content ranges from the existential experience of a soldier to that of a veteran of civil rights activism, from theorizing about peacemaking to commenting on the use of drones
Resistance and theological ethics by Ronald H Stone( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Resistance and Theological Ethics collects the edited and updated essays that emerged from the meeting of the Theological Educators for Presbyterian Social Witness in Geneva, Switzerland and southern France in 1999. These writings from educators and ethicists combine to sound a clarion call for the church to stand in resistance to social, economic and political forces that threaten-while embracing those that foster-social justice, peace and human welfare. Each author emphasizes a specific call to resistance against powers grounded in particular forms of sin: religious pride, greed, viol
