A Call to Fidelity seeks to thoughtfully examine and critically evaluate the contributions that Charles E. Curran has made to the field of Catholic moral theology over the past forty years. It also seeks to assess the development of specific topics in contemporary moral theology to which Curran has made his unique mark, particularly in fundamental ethics, sexual and medical ethics, social and political ethics, and topics related to dialogue with other traditions and approaches to Catholic ethics.
Reviewing the many years of his influential writings, thought, and scholarship, fourteen distinguished scholars examine his contributions and the current state of the topics under discussion -- which are as far ranging as academic freedom, birth control, gay and lesbian relationships, and feminism. Each contributor also provides a critical evaluation of Curran's work and outlines how these areas will hold or undergo transformation as the church looks toward its relationship with society and culture in the coming decades.
This is a collection of high quality essays on issues within moral theology that need continuing systematic reflection and study. It is an appropriate work to honour the achievements of priest and scholar Charles E. Curran who has boldly pursued the question of the demands of the Christian moral life in a changing world. Irish Theological Quarterly Highly recommended for graduate courses in moral theology, this text is a tightly written set of essays that gives one much to sort through. A Call to Fidelity is a cartography of promise. It belongs in theologian's hands and should be held in libraries. HORIZONS
