As one of the major British theologians and ethicists of the nineteenth century, F. D. Maurice is considered a forerunner of the contemporary ecumenical movement. His writings and work were an articulation of his theology, which emphasized the inclusiveness of Christianity despite ideological divisions within the Christian community. Maurice proposed a primary unifying principle, based on the dynamic love of God for humankind in all its diversity, that would bring the various Christian traditions into a catholic whole. This volume brings to readers a selection of Maurice's moral writings based on his theological worldview. It is the only anthology of his ethical writings currently available.

The Library of Theological Ethics series focuses on what it means to think theologically and ethically. It presents a selection of important and otherwise unavailable texts in easily accessible form. Volumes in this series will enable sustained dialogue with predecessors though reflection on classic works in the field.

F. D. Maurice (1805-1872), an Anglican priest, taught at King's College in London and was Professor of Moral Theology at Cambridge University. His ecclesiology and theology influenced thinkers such as H. Richard Niebuhr and Schubert Ogden.


Ellen K. Wondra is Professor of Theology and Ethics at Seabury-Western Theological Seminary in Evanston, Illinois. She is the author or coauthor of more than twenty books, essays, articles.
