The revised second edition of the accessible guide to contemporary ethical issues that are at the intersection of religion and morality

The updated second edition of Do Morals Matter? offers an authoritative yet approachable guide to the current ethical issues that bridge the gap between religion and morality. This informed text examines today’s key ethical issues that range from making moral decisions in business and medicine, to the uncertainty of war and terrorism and the tenuous condition of our environment.

This popular textbook embraces the dramatic changes that have occurred since the first edition was published such as changes in attitude towards the LGBT community as well as emerging ethical areas such as cyber ethics. In consultation with professors, the new edition includes sections at the beginning and end of each chapter that provide clear and succinct summaries of key issues, as well as reflective and discussion questions.

This revised text:

  • Sets out all the major ethical options in a balanced way inviting students to make their own mind up
  • Deals with both moral philosophy and applied ethics
  • Starts every chapter with a thought-exercise to provoke discussion
  • Places Brexit and President Trump in an appropriate ethical framework
  • Develops the concept of a Morally Serious Person.

Written for students studying ethics in departments of theology and religion, Do Morals Matter? is the thoroughly revised and updated edition of the text that explores contemporary ethical issues.
