Recovering Ethics by Allyne Smith

Recovering Ethics

Ethics after Christendom: Toward an Ecclesial Christian Ethic
by Vigen Guroian
Grand Rapids, Mich.: Eerdmans, 1994.
(206 pages: $12.99, paper)

reviewed by Allyne Smith

With the publication of his first book, Incarnate Love: Essays in Orthodox Ethics, Vigen Guroian established himself as an important figure in theological ethics. This, his second book in ethics, will no doubt increase both his significance and his readership, especially among non-Orthodox. Guroian clearly knows not only his native Armenian and the related Byzantine traditions, but also contemporary Protestant and Roman Catholic ethics. Literary references abound, from George MacDonald to William Faulkner and Walker Percy.
