Item description for Introducing Moral Theology: True Happiness and the Virtues by William C. Mattison...

Overview
Whether in the cafeteria, classroom, or dorm lounge, questions abound on college campuses. Not only do students grapple with existential issues but they also struggle with ethical ones such as "Why be moral?" In Introducing Moral Theology, William Mattison addresses this question as well as grapples with the impact that religious belief has on day-to-day living. Structured in two parts, this unique text on Catholic moral theology covers cardinal virtues (temperance, prudence, fortitude, and justice) as well as theological virtues (faith, hope, and love). It is equipped with study questions, terms and their definitions, and illustrative case studies. Rooted in the Catholic tradition, this overview will also appeal to non-Catholics interested in virtue ethics.

Reviews - What do customers think about Introducing Moral Theology: True Happiness and the Virtues?

It is great to see an introductory moral theology focused on virtue ethics  Feb 9, 2009
I accidently discovered this book and am so pleased to see an introductory text on moral theology that focuses on the role of happiness and the use of virtue theory as a way to welcome beginning students to moral theology. Mattison carefully builds on the ideas of Aristotle and takes it through Aquinas to convincingly argue a strong case for a Christian ethics based on the cardinal and theological virtues. His explanations are clear and he defines important terms that build on his later arguments. Obviously written with the undergraduate student in mind, I would also recommend this book to lay and graduate readers who may want to taste virtue theory as a framework for moral theology. I was curious to see mention of Jean Porter's "Nature as Reason," but no mention of her first, excellent book "Recovery of Virtue," another wonderful introduction to Thomist virtue theory. I highly recommend this book to those moral theologians who want to include a concise discussion of virtue theory to their courses. If I taught a moral theology course, I'd certainly use this book along with Porter's first book to give students a complete picture of emerging thought in Christian ethics. Well done, Dr. Mattison.
