About-

This recent edition of Christian Ethics Volume I is a thoroughly revised and updated version of fundamental moral theology. As in the previous editions, the author makes himself an interpreter of the demands of Vatican Council II and its request that moral theology be rooted more fully in Holy Scripture. At the same time account is taken of the new developments in the field of ethics. New issues of actual concern are taken up, such as the deontological and teleological conditions of moral norms, the confrontation between conscience and civil or ecclesiastical law, the communal roots of Christian identity, the requirement of liberty and the ethical compromise. The book addresses itself to all who are interested in the moral teaching of the Christian faith and endeavors to be a helpful instrument to this end.
