Welcome to BPL's Christian Ethics Research Guide!
This guide is designed to help students and researchers find library materials on Christian ethics and to provide pathways for further exploration. Students in VTS ethics courses might particularly find the "special topics" section useful for term paper research.
How to Use this Guide
Where possible, this guide includes "starting point" resources on a topic within ethics. These resources are often collections of essays in ethics that can be consulted for an overview of the particular subject area or ethical issue, along with a bibliography or recommendation for further reading. There is also a section for journal articles, which lists (and links to) prominent journals within Christian Ethics that are searchable.
There are also finding aids in each section. These aids list subject headings relevant to that particular topic. Students and researchers should use those subject headings as search terms within the library catalog to retrieve only the most relevant results. Additionally, there is a list of call numbers that can aid in browsing the stacks, which is another great way to discover resources on a topic.
