Gathered for the Journey
Full Product Description
The threefold structure of the book also underlines a methodological claim that is worked through in the following chapters. The text moves from gathering in worship, to faith in the Trinitarian God, through Christology, to Ecclesiology and then to theological anthropology, dealing with questions of Globalization, War, Bioethics, Sex and the Environment in the final section. The three parts of the book are also unified by questions that characterize virtue ethics, questions like ‘what are human beings for?’, ‘who ought we to become?’, and ‘what is the role of the church in the world?’ The virtue ethics approach is not undertaken at the exclusion of understanding moral rules and natural law, but these topics, like the chapters on the virtues, are set in terms of human fulfillment in God. Gathered for the Journey is designed as a classroom text for students of catholic moral theology, but will also be of interest and use to those outside the Catholic faith, studying Christian ethics.
