About the Authors
  • Few concepts are more central to ethics than love, but none is more subject to varying interpretation. This book explores several theological, philosophical, and literary accounts of love, focusing on how it relates to matters such as freedom and duty. Timothy Jackson also examines two concepts that are fundamental to Biblical ethical discourse--abomination and liberation--and relates these extremes to love, freedom and duty. Throughout this book he defends the moral priority of a distinctive type of love ("agape"), and argues for a realistic ethic of love.

    • Focuses on the meaning of Christian love, one of the most fundamental concepts of ethics
    • Explores theological, literary and philosophical accounts of love, sacrifice and charity
    • Examines how love constrains, and is constrained by, other traditional moral concepts such as freedom, duty and liberation
