Summary

A college text with discussion questions and readings that analyzes all the foundational problems of Christian ethics as aspects of the human effort to love others.

In this basic study on morality, James P. Hanigan suggests the reasons why a Christian morality is necessary to complement the teaching of Jesus in the Gospels. As I Have Loved You presents the problems, procedures and insights of moral theology, or Christian ethics, from the perspective of a Roman Catholic theologian. He examines the significant impact on the understanding of faith and morality of the changes introduced by Vatican Council II: religious freedom, the sanctity and inviolability of the individual conscience, greater social freedom and justice, and a renewed emphasis on the importance of the Bible. Feeling that people's confusion need not be as great as it sometimes is, Dr. Hanigan presents in this book a clear overview of a consistent and coherent tradition of moral thought and reflection. Students at all levels of college study, educated adults, and professional ministers seeking updating will find this to be a challenging book.
