Christian Ethics Reading Room

This page is designed to make writings on Christian Ethics available to those without easy access to a theological library. Some links below are to publicly available dissertations/ theses.  Most however connect to scanned, published books & articles via Google Books (only those volumes with significant content preview, e.g., a whole chapter or more, are included). Google Books allows you to search within a volume & also across volumes (rather than across the entire WWW). Hard to find & expensive monographs are also partially accessible to researchers. This Reading Room collects those relevant materials on one page.


NB: See special Issues in Christian Ethics below, including "Assisted Suicide / Physician Assisted Dying" -- current for Canadian churches in 2015
