Burns on Aug 05, For years the old Catholic joke went something like this: more promising Church careers were wrecked on the shoals of teaching moral theology than anywhere else. In truth, the teaching of Catholic moral theology is deceptively easy and maddeningly complex: easy in that the Church since New Testament days has codified in various ways the evils of life to be avoided; complex because, like all systems of law and behavior, even an inspired Church cannot legislate for every possible existential incidence. Moreover, the mission of forgiveness of sin must share the spotlight with the mission to cultivate a virtuous life, or "to be perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect. Longtin and Peach have put forward an introductory text that "sets the table" for a more specific discussion of Catholic moral teaching and current research, discussion, and controversy. Despite frequent reference to the Catechetism of the Catholic Church and other magisterial teachings, the reader should not expect an overview of these sources as much as a context for them.
