On the borders of general readers and students of ethics, the book looks at decision making in our lives. It is critical of traditional Christian approaches based on the idea of obedience, which has lost resonance in the modern world, and leaves Christian ethics open to the charge of reinforcing immaturity. This book has chapters focusing on the drivers of human life: sex, money, power and fame.
