Reviews - What do our customers think?
Number 13 in the great Roman Catholic publishing house Paulist Press's academic series Readings in Moral Theology, this collection of essays by various theologians and scholars, including the great Jesuit Father Avery Dulles of the Woodstock Institute, examines the history and at times from papacy to papacy radically shifting and discontinuous development of Roman Catholic Moral Theology.

Divided into five sections after an illuminating introduction to the history and often ephemeral essence of Roman Catholic moral theology by the general editor and eminent American professor of Roman Catholic moral theology, the Reverend Father Curran, author of several authoritative studies in the field far too numerous to mention but including Catholic Moral Theology in the United States: A History (Moral Traditions) as well as The Moral Theology Of Pope John Paul II (Moral Traditions Series), this collection is divided into five subsections, including, first of all, Religious Freedom, Democracy and Human Rights with a close and lively examination of the context and meaning of the Declaration of Religious Freedom by the Reverend Father John Courtney Murray SJ, author of We Hold These Truths: Catholic Reflections on the American Proposition (Sheed & Ward Classic) and THE PROBLEM OF GOD, Yesterday and Today. and himself the object of dozens of studies available here upon the this site. Father Murray's essay is drawn from the 1966 edition of Concilium War, Poverty, Freedom: The Christian Response: Moral Theology: Concilium (Vol. 15). In this opening section we also find an item by the well-known J. Bryan Hehir. Remember as noted in the Reverend Father Richard P. McBrien's irreplaceable tome Lives of the Popes - reissue: The Pontiffs from St. Peter to Benedict XVI, issues of Democracy and Freedom and Human Rights were not always well received by the Vatican, particularly in the Syllabus of Errors published a century and a half ago. Therefore this section's analysis of the development in Vatican teaching from the Syllabus to Pope John Paul II's eager embrace is helpful to us Catholics wishing to understand our Church and our true Faith.

The second section discusses Other Social Issues, including a typically brilliant and scholarly essay by the Reverend Father Avery Cardinal Dulles on the death penalty. The very learned Cardinal Dulles is certainly too well known to every Catholic to bore you with mention of his other several works available readily here, including The Assurance of Things Hoped For: A Theology of Christian Faith and A History of Apologetics. This section presents a second lengthy and learned essay regarding the death penalty by Brugger. As the Pontifical Commission on Peace and Justice officially declared last November the death penalty homicide, this section may merit some reinforcement. In any case, Pope John Paul II and successor find in numerous public statements no legitimate reason for any further imposition of capital punishment, an important development in Catholic moral theology which deserves mention and loud and repeated proclamation, particularly to our present US Supreme Court. For further study in this pro-life issue, please see Sister Prejean's work, including The Death of Innocents: An Eyewitness Account of Wrongful Executions. The USA remaining one of the few nations in the world still eagerly practicing the death penalty is both inexplicable and morally inexcusable.

Other issues also include an essay by Diana Hayes on Slavery and the Church and another essay on Slavery and Pope Leo XIII by John Francis Maxwell. Another issue under close consideration is Usury by John T. Noonan, author of The Lustre of Our Country: The American Experience of Religious Freedom. Usury grows in importance as an issue for Catholic Moral Theology in light of the current collapse of our unregulated credit industry in America, including sub-prime mortgages and abusive credit card practices with usurious rates which leave innocent, hard-working people desperate and destitute and homeless, against the laws of God and teachings of Jesus Christ upon which our Church is founded.

The third section provides a methodological meta-analysis entitled Anthropological and Methodological Changes in Catholic Social Teaching with an essay by Mary Elsbernd, author as well of A Theology of Peacemaking: A Vision, a Road, a Task.

The fourth section examines Marriage, Sexuality, Gender and family, certainly some hot button issues shifting significantly in Holy Mother Church's consideration. An essay by Lisa Sowle Cahill, author of Theological Bioethics: Participation, Justice, And Change (Moral Traditions Series) and Family: A Christian Social Perspective, is included.

The fifth section, entitled Theoretical Explanations in Official Catholic Moral Teaching, also involves academic and methodological meta-analysis, with an inclusion again from John T. Noonan.

While highly recommendable to every practicing Roman Catholic wishing to grow more clear about the depths of our Faith and the development of our Dogma, this learned and specialized work may find best and most understanding reception in the Catholic Moral Theology classroom under a kind and patient and wise professor, such as the Reverend Father Charles Curran. Otherwise it can make great reading at the beach this summer, and the moral implications of usury alone a lively discussion over dinner in the cottage at night!
This man does not teach what the Church teaches.  Jun 27, 2008
The author of this book has been censured by the Catholic Church. He is a dissident theologian and this particular book DOES NOT correctly explain Catholic teachings and contains heresy.
