Renewing Christian Ethics

The Catholic Tradition

The second Vatican council called for a revitalization of moral theology within the Catholic Church. Forty years later, Renewing Christian Ethics assesses the Church’s progress, incorporating the work of psychologists, sociologists, theologians, scriptural scholars, and cultural anthropologists to fully analyze the difficult convergence of authority and individual autonomy. Michael Allsopp’s text will be welcomed by those who teach courses in Christian ethics as well as by anyone concerned with moral decision making and the ethical demands of everyday life.
