Description:

This paper presents a book review of "Christian Ethics: An Essential Guide" by theologian Robin Lovin. The paper relates that, in the book, Lovin discusses how people of all faiths strive to lead a good life, although few could define a good life in a concrete fashion. The paper then relates that Lovin explains his beliefs and how finding a state of happiness and creating a truly good life means caring about the welfare of others in an indiscriminate manner, not simply satisfying desires.

From the Paper:

"Although almost everyone, Christian or non-Christian would say that he or she strives to lead a good life, very few people feel that they do lead such good a life, or, when pressed, could define a good life in a concrete fashion. Theologian Robin Lovin believes that a good life is not based in the pursuit of pleasure, although secular, materialist American culture may assure its citizens that this is the case. Lovin believes that such pleasure seeking is only that, in the true Aristotelian sense--a search for pleasures of the moment, rather than a search for the sort of true and lasting happiness that is the foundation of a good life. Finding a state of happiness within and creating a truly good life means caring about the welfare of others in an indiscriminate manner, not simply satisfying desires."
