Item Description...
Overview
The essential guide to grasp how Cardinal Bernardin's Consistent Ethic of Life has been received, developed, and judged relevant. When the late Cardinal Joseph Bernardin of Chicago advocated the "seamless garment" ethic it was seen as one of the most radical and thorough attempts to bring basic insights from the New Testament and Catholic tradition to bear on "life issues": abortion and euthanasia, capital punishment and assisted suicide, economic injustice and war. Here, ten premiere ethicists turn their attention to the legacy of Cardinal Joseph Bernardin's Consistent Ethic of Life in the twelve years since his death in 1996. The debates sparked by Bernardin's gambit has become one of the most productive dialogues between Catholics and the rest of American civil society. Contributors: Thomas Nairn, James J. Walter, Ron Hamel, James Keenan, Patricia Beattie Jung, Elizabeth Brinkman, Regina Wentzel Wolfe, M. Therese Lysaught, Dawn M. Nothwehr, and Thomas A Shannon.
