Moral Theology in Age of Renewal: A Study of the Catholic Tradition Since Vatican II
Paulinus Ikechukwu Odozor
Publisher: University of Notre Dame PressFormat: Paperback
This study offers a comprehensive survey of developments in moral theology since the Second Vatican Council. The author 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 since the 1960s. The dramatic changes and developments in moral theology during this period rival any in the history of the Church. The text covers a wealth of important topics, including the distinctiveness of Christian morality, natural law, scripture and ethics, moral norms, the Church's 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 should be of value to moral theologians, other ethicists, systematic theologians and anyone interested in Catholic cultural and intellectual history since Vatican II.
