Reviews - What do our customers think?
Defending Natural Law  Dec 18, 2005
The nameless reviewer in this article ("Noble but Sophomoric") uses the word "effort" which is merely dismissive, but also the word "sophomoric" which is a cudgel with a spike at the fat end. To be so caustic-especially about a book teaching moral (human) judgment-is at best disingenuous, at worst cowardly.
W. J. O'Malley, S.J.
fantastic introduction to Catholic ethics for high school students  Jul 11, 2005
Judge this book for what it is - a high school textbook. Take it from someone who has taught this book for over ten years - this is a fantastic introduction to Catholic ethics for high schoolers. O'Malley has taken fairly complex subjects, i.e. natural law ethics and virtue ethics, and has made them comprehensible and relevent to the lives of teens, no mean feat. I only hope Fr. O'Malley will revise this book that it will and remain in print for many years to come.
Noble but Sophomoric Effort  Jul 13, 2003
Rev. William J. O'Malley, S.J. has involved himself with literature, drama, and morality as a teacher, primarily in Jesuit secondary institutions of learning. This textbook is alone, to my knowledge, in it's attempt to address morality to secondary students on the basis of natural law theory, a product of Aristotelian and Thomistic epistemology. He maintains that moral decisions can be grounded on reason rather than revelation or authority. The text lacks either bibliography or index but a teacher's manual is published which, alas, also lacks bibliography or index. The Table of Contents includes an Introduction followed by three major sections: Morality in General, Relationship With Oneself, and Relationship with others. Each section is sub-divided into chapters covering various topics, each chapter introduced by a survey, a fable (of O'Malley's authorship), a brief reading (excerpted from various authors) , a thematic exposition, a dilemma, a faith reflection (including references to the Bible), review and discussion questions and suggested activities.

Entertaining as the text is, it was publised more than ten years ago and has not been revised. It is a noble but flawed effort in that it glosses over, with bravura panache, the assumptions behind natural law theory and the philosophical issues inherent in natural law theory.

Fr. O'Malley has, perhaps, built his own conscience on that foundation, but as the title suggests, everyone builds their own conscience. His text does not persuade me to build my conscience on his assumptions.

Good start for anyone looking to learn more about morality  Jan 3, 1999
This book is a very good, junior high to high school level textbook concerning morality. Its modern approach gives a realistic basis for morality. Although presented from a Christian perspective, any religion will find its message worthwhile.
