'Behaving in Public: How to Do Christian Ethics' - Nigel Biggar

Nigel Biggar, Director of the McDonald Centre and Regius Professor of Moral and Pastoral Theology at the University of Oxford, delivered the inaugural series of McDonald Lectures.  The series, entitled 'Behaving in Public: Christian Ethics outside of the Church’, consisted in four lectures delivered in the Blue Boar Lecture Theatre, Christ Church.  

The details of each lecture were as follows: 

4 February - 'Integrity, not distinctiveness.' 

11 February - 'Tense consensus.'

18 February - 'Who are the public?'

25 February - 'Can a theological argument behave?'

The lectures were developed into a monograph published in 2011 as Behaving in Public: How to Do Christian Ethics (Grand Rapids, MI: Wm. B. Eerdmans & Co.).  For more details of the book, see here.
