Morality, Religious and Secular: The Dilemma of the Traditional Conscience
Clarendon Press, 1980 - 168 pages
This book analyzes the moral confusion of contemporary society, relating rival conceptions of morality with a wide variety of views about the nature and predicament of man. Mitchell argues that many secular thinkers possess a traditional Christian conscience which they find hard to defend in
terms of an entirely secular world-view, but which is more in line with a Christian understanding of man.
