Item description for Moral Theology in an Age of Renewal: A Study of the Catholic Tradition since Vatican II by Paulinus Ikechukwu Odozor...
Fr. Paulinus Odozor, C.S.Sp., offers a comprehensive survey of developments in moral theology since the Second Vatican Council. In this useful new book he discusses the call of the Council for the renewal of moral theology and the role the Council itself played in this renewal. Odozor also explores the various issues and controversies which have marked the discipline in the past forty years. The dramatic changes and developments in moral theology during this time period rival any in the history of the Church.
Moral Theology in an Age of Renewal covers a wealth of important topics, including the distinctiveness of Christian morality, natural law, scripture and ethics, moral norms, the Churchs teaching authority, virtue ethics, and casuistry. Odozor provides a constructive proposal for a common ground which makes these debates in moral discourse possible.
This scholarly study, one of the few of its kind, will be of significant value for moral theologians, other ethicists, systematic theologians, and anyone interested in Catholic cultural and intellectual history since Vatican II.
