Costa Mesa, CA, June 15, 2015 – Vanguard University is proud to announce the recent release of Pursuing Moral Faithfulness: Ethics and Christian Discipleship (IVP Academic) by Dr. Gary Tyra. Tyra is professor of biblical and practical theology at Vanguard University, where he teaches courses in both the undergraduate and graduate programs.
“My students are hugely influential in my writing endeavors,” said Tyra. “A few years ago a student studying Christian ethics with me confessed in his final paper that he’d previously been guilty of making moral choices in essentially the same manner as his non-Christian peers. In Pursuing Moral Faithfulness I respond to this all-too-common practice, arguing that Christ’s followers can do better.”
“This is not a book about general ethical theory and practice but about the ethics of discipleship which is ultimately a responsive and responsible relationship with the trinitarian God,” says Simon Chan, Earnest Lau Professor of Systematic Theology, Trinity Theological College. “Tyra thus shows that Christian ethics and spirituality are two sides of the same coin.”
Before the May 2015 release of Pursuing Moral Faithfulness, Tyra published five previous works to rave reviews, the latest being A Missional Orthodoxy: Theology and Ministry in a Post-Christian Context (IVP Academic, 2013).
In addition to Tyra’s innovative written work and ongoing contributions as a professor at Vanguard University, he has spent over three decades providing pastoral leadership for three congregations.
Pursuing Moral Faithfulness: Ethics and Christian Discipleship by Dr. Gary Tyra can be purchased on www.amazon.com.
