2020 Future of Christian Ethics

The Committee has two objectives.  First, it seeks to understand, using all possible evidence, the current state of the field of Christian ethics -- in terms of its pedagogical, intellectual, and institutional presence in the academy; in terms of its vocation (both pedagogically and institutionally) in churches and ecclesial bodies; and in terms of its vocation in public life, conceived broadly.  Second, it seeks to use that understanding to offer tentative practical recommendations regarding how best to commit the resources of the Society to the present encouragement, and future cultivation, of the field of Christian ethics in the academy, for the churches, and amidst the public.

Group description: 
The 2020 Committee will explore the current status of, and future prospects for, the field of "Christian ethics" as a field of scholarship and teaching.
