Publisher's Summary

Join one of America's leading moral theologians in exploring life's most vital question: What does it mean to lead a good life?
Your professor for this 24-lecture course is Kenneth R. Himes, OFM (PhD, Duke University), an award-winning author and professor of theology at Boston College. Under his expert guidance, you will explore the following questions:



How does the Catholic theological tradition enable us to interpret moral experience?
What does it mean to be a moral person in light of a theological understanding of the human situation?
What resources are available to the Catholic community for the formation of conscience and wise discernment?

The course is structured in three parts. In the first, you will explore the meaning of moral theology generally, and in the second, you will come to understand how moral theology conceives of freedom, character, conscience, sin, and conversion. In the final part, you will explore how to use the Bible, reason, natural law, ecclesial context, and the Church's teaching office to inform moral theology.
In these lectures, you will learn to translate your religious beliefs into values and actions. Fr. Himes's course uses the best ideas from Catholic moral theology to help you explore the most important choices of your life. You will become a more reflective person who is better able to assist others in moral discernment.

A little vague

I would have liked to have seen specific examples on subjects for example euthanasia, birth control, the death penalty, embryonic stem cell research Etc

a voice to keep you engaged

As the author reads his work, he manages to convey his own lively interest in the subject as well as his appreciation for people who contribute to the ongoing dialogue about the good life. He presents Catholic thought without an attitude of superiority or condescension. His examples are quite memorable. I really wish this book was in kindle form as well!!!
