The Annual, the journal of the Society of Christian Ethics, publishes some of the most recent work by Christian ethicists in North America and offers a convenient way to keep abreast of the best scholarship in the discipline. It is indexed in Religion Index II, Religious and Theological Abstracts, Arts & Humanities Citation Index, Current Content/Arts & Humanities, and Research Alert.

The 1994 issue includes a presidential address by Margaret Farley on love in the postmodern world and essays on health care reform, the Protestant idea of vocation, women and aging, military ethics in the Gulf War, family theory in the Chicago School of economics, and religious freedom.
