Summary
Robert Adams gives a comprehensive philosophical account of a theistically-based framework for ethics. He draws on over 20 years of his published work to create this overarching framework, which is based upon the idea of a transcendent, infinite good, which is God, and its relation to the many finite examples of good in our experience
