   Abstract = {<jats:p>Modern discussions of the problem of ‘dirty
             hands’ often draw upon a tradition of thinking in American
             public theology that wrestles with political conflicts
             between moral limitations and responsibilities. This article
             examines the problem of dirty hands through the way two
             significant figures in the field, Paul Ramsey and Reinhold
             Niebuhr, employ concepts of tragedy in their public
             theological writings. The analysis suggests that Ramsey and
             Niebuhr provide several starting points for describing the
             ambiguous realities of the political context and
             establishing limits on morally permissible political
             behaviour. This offers a significant challenge to the idea
             that ‘tragedy’ can be used to describe the liberal
             failings of either scholar and asserts the potential
             helpfulness of their arguments as the church seeks to
             exchange reasons in a democratic culture.</jats:p>},

   Abstract = {<jats:p> Despite petitions from friends and critics through
             much of his career, Paul Ramsey adamantly refused to revise
             his first book, Basic Christian Ethics. Yet, several pieces
             of Ramsey’s private correspondence indicate specific
             changes to Basic Christian Ethics that he felt were
             necessary. These include a desire to distance his use of
             agape from associations with Anders Nygren’s Agape and
             Eros, an added emphasis on the importance of the doctrine of
             creation for his understanding of agape, covenant, and
             natural law, and a shift from eschatology to Christology as
             the foundational doctrine for political ethics. Drawing upon
             personal letters and other disparate comments throughout
             Ramsey’s published work, this paper explores the impact
             such proposed revisions might have on contemporary interest
             (or lack thereof) in Basic Christian Ethics. In so doing it
             also highlights Ramsey’s ability to rethink central
             theological concepts in his work and draw his readers’
             attention to fundamental questions in the field of moral
             theology. </jats:p>},
