"Agape Ethics will be warmly welcomed by means of theologians, ethicists, philosophers, and all who've ever longed for a concept of morality and ethics that might be which includes either human and nonhuman existence. students might be proud of Greenway's activity to color a compelling portrait of ways smooth technological know-how, philosophy, and theology have lowered the ethical realm of existence by means of their complicity with what he calls 'scientism,' the declare that truth pertains in simple terms to that which technological know-how can clarify. In short, Agape Ethics is an artistic enterprise from starting to finish, and the great thing about its eloquence will maintain the curiosity of all who're seized by means of its inclusive ethical appeal."
--Peter J. Paris, Elmer G. Homrighausen Professor Emeritus, Christian Social Ethics, Princeton Theological Seminary
"Inspired by way of Emmanuel Levinas's ethical philosophy, Greenway offers a considerate and believable case for a brand new agape ethics (based to find oneself 'seized by way of the faces of others') as a confident substitute to the moral relativism of postmodernity, the moral extremism of non secular radicals, and the moral foundationalism of modernity. With its richness in religious sensibility, public relevance, and ecological potency, Agape Ethics is a big success for Christian philosophical ethics."
--Hak Joon Lee, Lewis B. Smedes Professor of Christian Ethics, Fuller Theological Seminary
"A tour de force in meta-ethics and philosophical spirituality. Agape Ethics extends Emmanuel Levinas's insights on accountability to the opposite to all animals and builds a compelling case for agape as an irreducible moral-spiritual reality."
--Janet L. Parker, PhD, Senior Pastor, First Congregational United Church of Christ, Salem, Oregon
