Overview

Moral Wisdom: Lessons and Texts from the Catholic Tradition / Edition 2

The second edition of James F. Keenan's beloved book Moral Wisdom has been fully revised and updated, including new discussions on social sin and Pope Benedict XVI's encyclical Caritas in Veritate, a clearer exploration of Jesus in the New Testament, and new study questions at the end of each chapter. "Moral wisdom," as Father Keenan calls it, is the distinctive gift of the Catholic traditions, a gift that helps us discern what values to pursue and which virtues to embody on the path to becoming who we really are and who God calls us to be.
