More About This Textbook

Overview


In Catholic Ethics in Today's World, Drs. Jozef Zalot and Rev. Benedict Guevin, OSB, address what they describe as "a sense of confusion" expressed by many about what the Catholic Church really teaches on a range of ethical topics, as well as why it teaches what it does. In an accessible and engaging presentation, the authors demonstrate how the Catholic Church approaches many of the social, sexual, and medical challenges that face today's world communities, and they discuss the moral principles the Church provides for the formation of our consciences with respect to these challenges.

In the text, the authors fully recognize the breadth of dialogue among moral theologians regarding the teachings of the Church and that there is disagreement among faithful Catholics about issues facing the world today. Upholding the value of critical dialogue among different parties, in this text Zalot and Guevin wish to "offer a baseline from which people can understand what the Catholic Church teaches on a particular topic, so that they will be able to critically evaluate the teaching on its own merits and in light of the critique of others."

Catholic Ethics in Today's World is an excellent starting point for reflection on the ethical challenges we face in the contemporary world.
