Warren Copeland draws from his experience of more than two decades in city politics and addresses head on the issue of Christian ethics in public service. Throughout, he animates the discussion with numerous anecdotes from his tenure in City Hall, combining examples of specific ethical issues in American cities with theological and ethical reflection. Then he takes it a step further by including specific suggestions for addressing social injustice in a manner that is true to Christian faith.

Warren R. Copeland is Professor of Religion and Director of Urban Studies at Wittenberg University in Springfield, Ohio. Appointed to the Springfield, Ohio, City Commission in 1988, he was later elected to four four-year terms and went on to serve as Mayor. He is the author of And the Poor Get Welfare and Economic Justice.
