Despite the growing interest among philosphers and theologians in virtue ethics, its proponents have done little to suggest why Christians in particular find virtue ethics attractive. Joseph J. Kotva, Jr., shows that virtue theory offers an ethical framework that is highly compatible with Christian morality. Ecumenical in tone, this book provides a thorough but accessible introduction to recent philosophical accounts of virtue and offers an orginial, explicitly Christian adaptation of these ideas.
