This book contains papers from the Oxford Centre for Mission Studies’ quarterly journal, Transformation, on the topic of Christian Ethics. The papers were selected from volumes published over a period of 25 years during which period Transformation grew from merely being an international journal of ‘Christian social ethics’ to ‘Holistic Mission Studies’. Here, Mission Studies is understood in its widest sense to also encompass Christian Ethics. At the very heart of it lies the Family as the basic unit od society. We see all of the other papers on the themes of word and works, poverty, justice and environment relate primarily to this theme. All the papers together seek to contribute to understanding how Christian thought is shaped in contexts each of which poses its own challenges to Christian living in family and in broader society.
