What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
"Bretzke's Handbook of Roman Catholic Moral Terms is a unique guide to the often arcane infrastructure of Catholic moral theology, whose premises, principles, and conclusions can seem impenetrable to the student and whose developmental history can elude even the most diligent scholar. This book is an invaluable point of entry to a worldview and logic that survives still as the scaffolding of official Roman Catholic pronouncements on sexual and biomedical ethics. Anyone who needs to teach, counsel, or write in these areas will pull Bretzke's book frequently off the shelf." — Lisa Cahill, Monan Professor of Theology, Boston College

"This much-needed reference work for students and scholars of all stripes is a resource that can guide research and clarify discussions of complex issues often confused by the misuse of key concepts." — Richard M. Gula, SS, Emeritus Professor of Moral Theology, Franciscan School of Theology

"Bretzke's Handbook is comprehensive, practical, and thoughtfully written. Intelligently organized with helpful references, it draws the reader to a richer understanding and appreciation of the catholic moral tradition. It will be a valuable resource for any student of moral theology." — Eric Marcelo O. Genilo, SJ, assistant professor, Loyola School of Theology
