Review by Mary Catherine O'Reilly-Gindhart forthcoming.


Renowned ethicists Salzman and Lawler build upon their own synthesis of virtue and theological ethics to provide a foundational text for undergraduate courses in theological ethics. Drawing from sources including Catholic social teaching and the insights of past and present Catholic theologians, this award-winning team introduces and then applies their ethical method to such topics as ecology, economics, hookup culture, and liberation theology.
