In this book, Thomas Ogletree seeks to establish common ground between biblical understandings and contemporary ethical inquiry. Drawing upon phenomenological investigations, he criticizes and modifies some of the most prominent conceptions of ethics, and moves toward a more coherent and comprehensive ethical theory. Guided by this theory, he critically engages selected biblical treatments of the moral life, placing special emphasis on biblical accounts of eschatology in its import for the ordered life of emerging Christian communities.

Thomas W. Ogletree is Frederick Marquand Professor of Ethics and Religious Studies at Yale Divinity School in New Haven, Connecticut. He has previously served as Dean at both Yale Divinity School and the Drew University Theological School and as President of the Society of Christian Ethics.
