The Annual, the journal of the Society of Christian Ethics, is an essential source for students and faculty to keep abreast of new developments in Christian and religious ethics and to locate sources for research. The Annual publishes nine to ten refereed scholarly articles a year as well as a professional resources section on teaching and scholarship in ethics. Subjects include the nature and tasks of religious ethics, comparative ethics involving a variety of Western and Eastern traditions, religious social ethics and social theory, and problems in professional and applied ethics.
