Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics
Fall 2002
Volume 25
Gudorf, Christine E. and Paul Lauritzen, Editors
Formerly known as The Annual of the Society of Christian Ethics, it will now bear the official title: The Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics. Instead of appearing as an annual, the Journal will begin appearing twice a year in 2003—in the spring and in the fall. The Journal will continue to be an essential resource for students and faculty pursuing the latest developments in Christian and religious ethics, publishing refereed scholarly articles as well as a professional resources section on teaching and scholarship in ethics—a preeminent source for further research.
Christine E. Gudorf is professor of religious studies at Florida International University, the author of Body, Sex, and Pleasure: Reconstructing Christian Sexual Ethics, and coauthor of Christian Ethics: A Case Method Approach.

Paul Lauritzen is chairperson of the Department of Religious Studies and director of the Program in Applied Ethics at John Carroll University in Cleveland, and editor of Cloning and the Future of Human Embryo Research.
