Most people working in the field of Christian ethics know the first edition of Gill's Companion (2000) and will welcome this second edition. Four new chapters have been added, and updates on developments in the field have been included in the 16 other chapters. New to this edition are reflections comparing Eastern and Western branches of Christian ethics, Christian ethics in Asia, and Gill's own exploration of sexual ethics. The utility of these essays is that they summarize a particular area's issues in a way that makes them easily accessible to both scholars and beginning students. Most of the essays do not attempt to break new ground, but instead faithfully reflect where the field is today in the various areas covered. These include, in addition to the topics already mentioned, the Bible and ethics, natural law, virtue, gender, and liberation ethics. Readers will find that the specific topics addressed include war, the arms trade, ecology, business ethics, and medical ethics. Of particular interest are two essays from non-Christian (one Asian and one Jewish) perspectives. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers. F. G. Kirkpatrick Trinity College (CT)
