Contemplating the Future of Moral Theology
Essays in Honor of Brian V. Johnstone, CSsR
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Brian Johnstone is a longstanding colleague of many in our field, and a respected, careful, and judicious interpreter of moral theology. This volume conveys his insights from the Vatican II era into a new global context, showing their continuing power and relevance in the twenty-first century. Global North and South, Rome and local churches, clerical and lay moralists, moralists and ordinary Catholics--as Charles Curran says in his foreword, dialogue is key. This book demonstrates that truth, and Johnstone's embodiment of it."
--Lisa Sowle Cahill, Monan Professor of Theology, Boston College
"Unlike many Festschriften, this volume reflects a unity of theme and approach, and it would serve as a good introduction to recent work in the field. As such, it is a fitting tribute to Professor Johnstone, whose long career has been distinguished by scholarly excellence, wide-ranging interests, and a commitment to ideals of dialogue and collegiality. This book is highly recommended to everyone who is interested in the current state of moral theology and its possible future trajectories."
--Jean Porter, University of Notre Dame
