Higher education as a moral enterprise by Edward Le Roy Long( )

9 editions published in 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book argues that higher education is fundamentally a moral enterprise that needs to be guided by commitments to what is morally right and fundamentally good. It takes issue with prevailing tendencies to give attention merely to what is intellectually warranted, operationally feasible, or superficially attractive to students who consider themselves more as consumers of educational wares than as aspirants to membership in a special guild. Sixteen chapters consider the purpose of education; education and selfhood; cognitive, affective, and kinesthetic skills in the wholeness of selfhood; the significance of the community for the institution of learning; frolic and celebration in the academy; grading and growth; curriculum boundaries and methodologies; certainty and doubt; scholarly style; scholarly ethos; pedagogical interaction; learning and social responsibility; power and credibility; the academy as neighbor and citizen; governance as communal responsibility; and policy study. Each chapter contains a list of references. (Mdm)
Applied Christian ethics : foundations, economic justice, and politics( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 716 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

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

4 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 525 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

The Christian as a doctor by James T Stephens( Book )

3 editions published in 1960 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the old-fashioned doctor had little trouble relating religion to his practice by means of pious behavior, the modern doctor is perplexed as to what difference religion makes in medical practice -- or what difference it ever did make. Like many moderns he finds religion, if he has it, something apart from life itself -- removed from occupational realities. He does not understand how Christian faith should affect the choice or conduct of an occupation. To let religion affect occupational decisions seems to many to be a dubious mixing of "religion and business," and pious behavior in a professional setting seems artificial and unreal. At many places in the following discussion it would seem that the Christian doctor does not differ from the non-believer in the everyday practice of his profession. The physician in this portrait is the modern informed man of good will. It is implied that he is a bit more perceptive of issues, more philosophical, more disciplined, more aware of how all actions are morally ambiguous, and alert to how pride destroys perspective. But in this book the Christian doctor is shown as shrinking from the claim that his faith distinguishes him from the agnostic or atheist in the practice of medicine. The image which emerges is one of a believing and perhaps even beloved physician whose characteristic disclaimer is like that of our Lord, "Why callest thou me good?" A Christian faith that can relate itself to modern life must speak the language of the new, modern doctor. It will not be heard if it urges a return to the expression of Christian piety that captured the public imagination in former years. The following is a "begin-where-you-are" approach which attempts to say: "There are spiritual dimensions to the doctor's job: sense them, cultivate them; deepen your insights as a physician, and you will find that you are not far from the Kingdom." Let no one suggest that the "Christian" depicted in these pages is a mildly convinced, ambivalent, inarticulate believer -- and yearn for a volume entitled "A Doctor Succeeds Through Prayer." This is an exploratory inductive study to lead readers into the fruitful pilgrimage of faith in contact with vocation itself which can result in a real synthesis of religion and life. It is offered in an earnest effort to help all physicians feel out the spiritual contours of their own vocation. - Preface

Resistance and theological ethics by Ronald H Stone( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 29 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
