WINNER 2019 CATHOLIC PRESS ASSOCIATION BOOK AWARD! - FAITHFUL CITIZENSHIP, FIRST PLACE

Salzman and Lawler draw upon founda­tional insights from virtue and theologi­cal ethics to propose a Catholic ethical methodological schema for the twenty-first century. Discussing topics such as natural law, conscience, and human dignity, the authors show how their new method may be used to treat issues of human sexuality in light of Cath­olic social teaching.

Todd A. Salzman is professor of Catholic the­ology at Creighton University. He is co-author (with Michael Lawler) of numerous books, in­cluding The Sexual Person: Toward a Renewed Catholic Anthropology and Sexual Ethics: A Theological Introduction (both Georgetown).

Michael G. Lawler is dean emeritus of Creighton University’s graduate school of arts and sciences and emeritus professor of Catholic theology at Creighton.

Salzman and Lawler argue for a person-centered, virtue approach for theological ethics and they make a strong case for how this approach has been and can continue to be developed using the resources of the Catholic tradition. This text would work well in courses on ethics in general, or on sexual ethics specifically.
