♥ Book Title : Humanae Vitae Forty Years On. a New Commentary
☯ Full Synopsis : "The publication in July 1968 of Pope Paul VI's encyclical letter, Humanae Vitae, sparked unprecedented controversy about the Church's perennial teaching on human sexuality. For several decades, the papal document was disputed and often misunderstood in many circles. Yet, 40 years on, the prophetic quality of Paul VI's writing about human love is being recognised by more and more people. This book by Fr G. J. Woodall offers a new translation of this major encyclical together with a detailed commentary which enables the reader to understand the Church's message and which sheds light on the richness of the teaching. It is intended for the general public and conveys the wealth of pastoral teaching contained in Humanae Vitae, a wealth that has too often been overlooked. Today, when so many are grappling with moral issues in the areas of sexuality and family life, and when society is confused and misled, we can see Humanae Vitae for the prophetic document that it was and still is. Now that the Church is beginning to unpack the legacy of the Theology of the Body bequeathed by Pope Saint John Paul II, this new commentary on Humanae Vitae comes as a timely resource."Article| George J.

♥ Book Title : Life Together
☯ Full Synopsis : "In recent decades there has been a growing interest and focus on symbiosis and relationality in sciences, philosophy, and theology. The former ‘atomistic’ worldview in which things were examined in their individuality, as if they were somehow isolated and independent, and in which the concept of substance prevailed, is fading away in favor of an all-encompassing and synthetic understanding of reality, in which things are examined in their interconnectedness and in which the concept of relation is highlighted. This volume intends to be a contribution to this new worldview. In this book the relationship between life and togetherness is studied from the points of view of biology, neurology, psychotherapy, anthropology, bioethics, law, business, Greek literature, music, philosophy, and theology. Each chapter is the result of a particular discipline and is introduced by a meaningful quotation that offers a hint to the main thesis advanced by the author. Coming from different nations and universities, the writers of this volume joined the Research Project “The Organism in an Interdisciplinary Context.” Regina Apostolorum Pontifical University in Rome has led this project since the year 2005 with the aim of advancing a dialogue between sciences, philosophy and theology. Their converging research has produced a series of seminars and conferences as well as the publication of three books on the organism in an interdisciplinary context, the definition of death, and the relationship between life and organism."Article| Alfonso Aguiilar, Rafael Pascual| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Moral theology after Humanae Vitae
☯ Full Synopsis : "The author discusses some of the major developments in fundamental moral theology which were sparked off by the publication of the hugely controversial encyclical, Humanae Vitae (1968), as well as the impact of its rejection by many leading moral theologians. Within the broader cultural background of modernity, Professor Twomey analyses this dissent and attempts to sketch an alternative moral theology based on the recovery of virtue as the context for moral reflection and on a new appreciation of the nature of sexuality. He also attempts a positive appreciation of the generally neglected doctrinal content of Pope Paul VIs encyclical that shook the world when it appeared in order to explain why Humanae Vitae remains to this day a sign of contradiction within the Church and beyond."Article| Vincent Twomey| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Modern Catholic Social Teaching
☯ Full Synopsis : "With an equal emphasis on every word in the title—and with a distinctly American perspective—Himes and his distinguished associate editors and contributors, have assembled the most thorough and authoritative assessment of modern Roman Catholic social teaching to date, likely to remain the touchstone volume for decades. This culmination of many years of effort by twenty stellar scholars has produced a reference work for anyone interested in understanding or studying the key documents that comprise the central corpus of Catholic social teaching. In addition to interrogations of the major documents, this volume provides an understanding of the biblical and philosophical foundations of Catholic social teaching, addresses the doctrinal issues that arise in such a context, and explores the social thought leading up to the "modern" era, generally accepted as beginning in 1891 with the publication of Pope Leo XIII's Rerum Novarum. Finally, there is a review of how Catholic social teaching has been received in the United States, and an informed look at the shortcomings and questions that future generations must address. By any standard, Modern Catholic Social Teaching is a remarkable work—intellectually rigorous and deeply faithful, it provides accessible and thought-provoking insights into the heart of a belief tradition that every Catholic will find invaluable."Article| Kenneth R. Himes, OFM| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Contemporary Controversies in Catholic Bioethics
☯ Full Synopsis : "This volume comprises various viewpoints representing a Catholic perspective on contemporary practices in medicine and biomedical research. The Roman Catholic Church has had a significant impact upon the formulation and application of moral values and principles to a wide range of controversial issues in bioethics. Catholic leaders, theologians, and bioethicists have elucidated and marshaled arguments to support the Church’s definitive positions on several bioethical issues, such as abortion, euthanasia, and reproductive cloning. Not all bioethical issues, however, have been definitively addressed by Catholic authorities, and some Church teachings allow for differing applications in diverse circumstances. Moreover, as new biomedical technologies emerge, Church authorities rely on experts in science, medicine, philosophy, theology, law, and other disciplines to advise them. Such experts continue to debate issues related to reproduction, genetics, end-of-life care, and health care policy. This volume will be a valuable resource for scholars in bioethics or Catholic studies, who will benefit from the nuanced arguments offered based on the latest research. This volume is also instructive for students entering the field to become aware of the founding philosophical and theological principles informing the Catholic bioethical worldview."Article| Jason T. Eberl| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The Catholic Moral Tradition Today
☯ Full Synopsis : "The Catholic tradition has always tried to explain its theology in a coherent and systematic way, but the great changes and tensions existing within Catholic moral theology today have made it difficult to develop systematic approaches to what was once called fundamental moral theology. Now a leading scholar active in this field for forty years offers a synthesis of Catholic moral theology set in the context of the broader Catholic tradition and the significant developments that have occurred since the Second Vatican Council. Charles E. Curran’s succinct, coherent account of his wide-ranging work in Catholic moral theology points out agreements, disagreements, and changes in significant aspects of the Catholic moral tradition. His systematic approach explores major topics in a logical development: the ecclesiological foundation and stance of moral theology; the person as moral subject and agent; virtues, principles and norms; conscience and decision making; and the role of the church as a teacher of morality. Curran’s work condenses and organizes a large amount of material to show that the Catholic theological tradition is in dialogue with contemporary life and thought while remaining conscious of its rich history. Of great interest to theologians for its broad synthetic scope, this book is also a thorough introduction to the Catholic moral tradition for students and interested readers, including non-Catholics."Article| Charles E. Curran| Statement ..."
