Introducing Moral Theology: True Happiness and the Virtues
by William C. Mattison III. 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.
