These two important new reference works provide comprehensive guides to the field of ethics. The Blackwell Companion to Christian Ethics focuses on worship as the key to understanding Christian ethics and forming the Christian life, and The Blackwell Companion to Religious Ethics takes a broader look at seven major world traditions and their approach to moral issues. Both follow a trend in recent reference works by providing a series of extended articles on major questions rather than short entries on specific topics. Thus they are good background reading as well as ready sources of information. These major volumes are made and priced for long-term reference. Consider them for your church library or recommend them to your local public librarian if the price puts them out of reach.
