How do Christians think and act faithfully in a complex and often ambiguous world? What models from Scripture and Church history might help us to live “lives worthy of the Gospel” in the 21st century? This eloquent, challenging and inspiring six-week introduction to Christian ethics avoids pat answers and simplistic lists of do’s and don’t’s . The course includes weekly video lectures by Dr. Sondra Wheeler, professor of Christian ethics at Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, D.C. Dr. Wheeler focuses on the formation of Christian character, citing helpful examples both from Scripture and from Church history. She concludes with a test case: the issue of money and consumption. What would Paul, Augustine, Luther and Wesley say to modern Christians about their use of resources? Lessons Include: 1. Introduction: A Christian Way of Living? Four Models for Christian Ethics: 2. Scripture: The Story that Forms Us 3. Augustine: Ordering Our Loves 4. Luther: The Spirit of Christian Life 5. Wesley: Transforming Grace 6. Conclusion: Learning from Our Traditions — A Test Case
