"Imagine an introductory text in moral theology that is synthetic of diverse perspectives on important themes of the moral life and is a page-turner at the same time. That is what The Christian Moral Life turns out to be....This splendid volume is theologically rich, interreligiously informed, and prophetically forthright in showing that even more than rules and actions, morality is about the kind of person we ought to become: a faithful disciple. Theology students, teachers, and interested laity alike could not ask for a more finely crafted resource. Lamoureux and Wadell make the vision and form of a virtue-oriented approach to the moral life clear and compelling"---Richard M. Gula, S.S., Franciscan School of Theology/Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley

"This is a fine text in moral theology for Catholic undergraduates and parish groups---firmly rooted in faith, global in scope, theologically perceptive, pedagogically astute, and inclusive of insights from other religious traditions."---Charles E. Curran, Southern Methodist University

This new introduction to moral theology is focused on Christ, rooted in the Scriptures, and connected to the sacramental and spiritual life. It views the Christian moral life as one of faithful discipleship imbued with Christian virtues. To make the discussion accessible to students, each of the ten chapters includes a conclusion, a list of key points, questions for reflection, and suggestions for further reading.
