Stephen Holmgren is Associate Professor of Ethics and Moral Theology at Nashotah House in Wisconsin, where he also works with two area medical ethics committees. A popular speaker and conference leader, he has served parishes in the Tennesse and Milwaukee.
The eight chapters in this book begin with 'The Walk from the Font' and end with 'Building a Case in Christian Ethics.' In between the reader is systematically lead through the logic of how we, as followers of Christ, can faithfully respond to our desire to fully live out our Baptismal Covenant. Serious stuff, but so well presented that I could barely put the book down. -- Dick Vanderlippe, Diocese of Massachusetts A good reference book for people seeking grounding and 'ground rules' for discussing life issues, and as a resource for group discussion. Resources Hotline Amid the thicket of ethical distinctions and opposing opinions, and with helpful summaries and study questions, Holmgren has written a book that is never polemical and often irenic, especially when he draws upon the Church's rich and commonly held liturgical resources. I think it is fair to say that his general approach is moderately conservative, but there is more often than not enough leeway for engagement and debate within the wide range of moral discourse that presently marks the Episcopal Church and Anglican Communion.
