Gilbert Melinder reflects on some problems in moral life. He sees the difficulties he faces in vision, which not only highlights the boundaries but also the promise of the Christian story.
God created us as limited beings, and we put certain attachments. God replaces us with a society that transcends nature and history, and our love always carries us beyond the special bonds of time and space.
We live, therefore, with a sense of constant tension. If this tension increases our sense of the lake of life, we should not free ourselves from the obligation to investigate, clarify, and (where we can) resolve some of these difficulties.
The author believes that theological ethics must explain the direction of growth and development within Christian life. He makes such an analysis, emphasizing all the limits of the human condition, the importance of our nature as embodied beings, the danger and the pretense of some of our attempts to control and prevent human life.
This Christian vision is developed in chapters that explore a range of ethical problems, such as abortion, artificial reproduction, euthanasia, nurturing erroneous infants, providing artificial nutrition and moisturizing, and marital and political society. These are all around, however, theological explorations. Together, not only pose certain problems in moral life, but a vision of life - a classic Christian in its conception, a humanity in its care for certain bonds of association, and a modest recognition of ethical constraints on our ability to seek good.
Melinder has developed a broad recognition among scientists, ethics students and interested public readers. He has the ability to throw new angles of vision on complex problems to help both the sophisticated reader and the unconscious to think more intently about ethical issues..
