      The Fullness of Free Time: A Theological Account of Leisure and Recreation in the Moral Life

      Product Description

      An ethical framework and vision of free time for social good--and how to achieve it.

      In the work-centric culture of today's world, it is easy to view free time as indulging laziness or extravagance. Conor M. Kelly, however, argues that free time possesses enormous potential for good if exercised in accordance with theological ethics.

      By examining pursuits such as television, digital media use, sports, and travel from the perspective of Catholic solidarity, Kelly demonstrates how individuals can choose new free time activities or restructure current pursuits to be more relational and socially conscious.

      The first book to use the Catholic theological tradition to explore the importance of free time, The Fullness of Free Time addresses a crucial topic in the ethics of everyday life, providing a useful framework for scholars and students of moral theology, philosophy, and political theory, as well as anyone hoping to make their free time more meaningful.

      --Jason King, professor of theology, Saint Vincent College and editor, the Journal of Moral Theology
