The author invites readers to look at what informs the moral and ethical choices and decisions we make and what kind of people we seek to be. Coming from a distinctly liberal position himself, the author introduces a number of different approaches to making moral decisions and judgements, from different secular and Christian perspectives. In the second half of the book, he focuses on a number of specific ethical issues such as sexuality, the environment and assisted death. Harrod argues that we make moral decisions first and foremost as human beings and do so in a context that is shaped by factors such as different philosophical traditions and other world religions. Written in a witty and engaging style, the author seeks to enable his readers to engage with a wide range of different approaches, and thereby to become competent in developing their own positions.John Harrod
