Renowned scholar Robert Adams explores the relation between religion and ethics through a comprehensive philosophical account of a theistically-primarily based framework for ethics. Adams’ framework begins with the nice somewhat than the best, and with excellence somewhat than usefulness. He argues that loving the very good, of which adoring God is a clear example, is essentially the most fundamental aspect of a life well lived. Developing his original and detailed theory, Adams contends that devotion, the sacred, grace, martyrdom, worship, vocation, faith, and other concepts drawn from non secular ethics have been sorely overpassed in moral philosophy and can enrich the feel of moral thought.
