Featured Author: David P. Gushee
"Here is the problem," wrote David Gushee in the 2003 foreword to Kingdom Ethics: Christian churches, and Christian ethics as a discipline, "are often guilty of evading Jesus, the cornerstone and center of the Christian faith." Gushee's work has always sought to put, and keep, Christ at the center of Christian ethics.
Gushee is a renowned Christian ethicist and the author or editor of 20 books, including a new, substantially revised edition of Kingdom Ethics, the leading Christian ethics textbook of the twenty-first century, which Gushee authored with the late. The first edition (with IVP) sold more than 30,000 copies and was translated into eight languages. The second edition is certain to be a new landmark, with updated scholarship and a broader scope enabling a new generation to grapple with the challenges and questions facing Christians in the modern world.
Practical engagement has long been an emphasis in Gushee's ethics. As part of his work as Distinguished University Professor of Christian Ethics and Director of the Center for Theology and Public Life at Mercer University, Gushee has been active in political activism, board service, and opinion writing for major newspapers and news outlets. Christians, Conflict, and Change, Gushee's blog for Religion News Service, won the 2016 Wilbur Award for best faith-based blog. Previous books by Gushee include The Sacredness of Human Life.
