In the first part of this thought-provoking book, moral theologians address the worldwide AIDS pandemic and illustrate the complexity of HIV prevention and treatment within the context of local issues and cultural concerns in twenty-six cases from Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, Latin America, and North America.

In the second part, essays by well-known theologians home in on the fundamental moral issues involved and demonstrate how the Roman Catholic tradition can help in constructively mediating the moral conundrum of HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment.

A concluding essay by Kevin Kelly focuses on the challenges AIDS presents to moral theology at the beginning of the new millennium.

Industry Reviews

"Keenan . . . has done a remarkable service for the pastoral life of the Church, while the various case responses collected here reveal the richness and subtlety of the Catholic moral tradition trying to respond-if somewhat late in the day-to the greatest moral and medical crisis of the twentieth century."-Studia Moralia
