ethical reflection from a Christian standpoint. Along the way, he
introduces the reader to the moral psychology work of such authors as

Hans-Georg Gadamer and Paul Ricoeur. Browning also recognizes the
potential limits of the conversation between moral psychology and
Christian ethics, pointing out where the two must diverge.
