What is ethics all about? In this book Herbert McCabe suggests that it is about loving, obeying laws and talking to people. In doing so, he offers an introduction to ethical thinking for anyone with a serious interest in moral philosophy. He does so as someone who writes with a Christian audience in mind. Most of his arguments, however, do not presuppose a believing Christian readership.
Herbert McCabe was a Dominican Friar and theologian of outstanding originality who died in 2001. He was deeply influential on philosophers such as Anthony Kenny and Alasdair MacIntyre and poets and writers like Terry Eagleton and Seamus Heaney.

Editorial Reviews

"That may be about to change with the republication of two of his early books, Law, Love and Language and God Matters, and the posthumous publication of a collection of essays, God Still Matters, and a book of sermons, God, Christ and Us.... McCabe's theology merits attention not only because of its wit...but also because of the care and precision with which he treats difficult questions....McCabe's approach to ethics helps us ask these kinds of questions.... God, Christ and Us contained 27 sermons that are worthy models for preachers, who stand on the front lines of theological discourse." -Christian Century, 1/25/05
