Pocket Dictionary of Ethics 
By Stanley J. Grenz & Jay T. Smith

Ethics is as old as the city-state and as new as cyberspace. Guided by the
wagon tracks of moral tradition, it nevertheless rides the cutting edge of
science and technology. Increasingly it is moving into the corner offices of
law, business, medicine, science and technology.

But few of us arrive in our first ethics class-or take our seat at an ethics
committee-with a grip on the range of ideas and thinkers, perspectives and
pitfalls that make up this ancient conversation about what is good and right
and moral. We may feel like college math students who slipped through high
school without learning algebra.

The Pocket Dictionary of Ethics is a convenient power-assist unit to help
you ramp up to speed. It not only takes you where your desktop dictionary
was not designed to go, it doubles as a basic A-to-Z survey or refresher
course in ethics.

Among its 300 definitions are

terms, from altruism to zygote
issues, from animal rights to war
perspectives, from Aristotelianism to Utilitarianism
marketplace specialties, from advertising to technological ethics

Jay T. Smith is senior pastor of First Baptist Church in Bellingham, Washington.
