Self Love and Christian Ethics by Darlene Fozard Weaver
Book DescriptionSelf love is an inescapable problem for ethics, yet much of contemporary ethics is reluctant to offer any normative moral anthropologies. Instead, secular ethics and contemporary culture promote a norm of self-realization which is subjective and uncritical. Christian ethics also fails to address this problem directly, because it tends to investigate self love within the context of conflicts between the self's interests and those of her neighbors. Self Love and Christian Ethics argues for right self love as the solution of proper self-relation that intersects with love for God and love for neighbor. Darlene Fozard Weaver explains that right self love entails a true self-understanding that is embodied in the person's concrete acts and relations. In making this argument, she calls upon ethicists to revisit ontological accounts of the self and to devote more attention to particular moral acts.

Acting Person and Christian Moral Life, Paperback (December 2011)
What may we say about the significance of particular moral actions for one's relationship with God? Using an overarching theological context of sinful estrangement from and gracious reconciliation in God, this title shows how individuals negotiate their relationships with God in and through their involvement with others and the world.
