Moral Wisdom: Lessons and Texts from the Catholic Tradition

Moral Wisdom: Lessons and Texts from the Catholic Tradition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At a time when religion and spirituality have been divorced from one another and morality and ethics are viewed as being confining rather than liberating, Fr. James Keenan has developed a new edition to his beloved book Moral Wisdom. There are new discussions of 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 Fr. Keenan calls it, is the distinctive gift of the Catholic tradition, 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. Fr. Keenan uses a conversational style filled with stories and examples to open the treasure trove of resources in the Catholic tradition for developing moral wisdom. He lifts up the lessons on love, conscience, sin, and suffering, helping readers connect with the formative influences of the Catholic heritage and appreciate what gives meaning to our lives and what enhances our relationships with friends and family

Synopsis:

In the new edition of Moral Wisdom, Fr. Keenan uses his conversational writing style, stories, and examples to expand upon his already appreciated understanding on four key texts from the Catholic tradition the person of Jesus in the New Testament, the Ten Commandments in the catechism, the practice of the corporal works of mercy, and the development of the four cardinal virtues. The new edition includes new sections on social sin, Jesus of Faith, and Pope Benedict XVIOs encyclical on Caritas in veritate, along with new study questions at the end of each chapter.

Synopsis:

The second edition of James F. Keenan's Moral Wisdom has been fully revised and updated, including new discussions of 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 tradition, 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 wants us to be.
