Pressestimmen

There is a tremendous power in defining oneself, especially in conversation with others who share similar interests, goals and ideals. This volume reflects just such a process of self-definition on the part of a community of younger Catholic moral theologians who have been meeting together since 2002. If the essays collected here are any indication, this process has already been fruitful, and holds great promise for the renewal of Catholic theology. While these younger theologians locate themselves as part of a new generation of Catholics, a generation removed from the subculture that preceded Vatican II, they draw on the best of the earlier traditions while at the same time bringing new questions and fresh perspectives to the field. This volume will be essential reading for anyone engaged in Christian moral reflection, or for anyone with a stake in the future direction of the church. -- Jean Porter, John A. O'Brien Professor of Theology at the University of Notre Dame, author of Natural and Divine Law: Reclaiming the Traditio One of the great strengths of these younger Catholic scholars is their deep and creative attention to, familiarity with, and love of classic Catholic theological and spiritual traditions of faithful thought and practice. The authors of New Wine, New Wineskins put this attention, expertise, and love to good use in taking a constructive yet critical view of the state of moral theology today. -- William Werpehowski, Professor of Theology and Religious Studies and Director of the Center for Peace and Justice Education at Villanova University The reader will find fabulous forays into the issues of formation, teaching, methodology, and real intervention on key moral issues debated by proportionalists and anti-proportionalists. This book is refreshing and promises not only new wine, but also a new party in the future houses of Catholic moral theology. All are welcome to drink from this goblet. -- Gavin D'Costa, Department of Theology and Religious Studies, University of Bristol We are beginning to see the makings of a new vision for doing moral theology in the twenty-first century. -- Patrick J. Hayes New Wine, New Wineskins is an important book. A new generation of Catholic moral theologians has arisen and the very conflict between the proportionalists and the conservatives has been left behind because it is seen as unfruitful. Catholic moral theology will be increasingly done by lay people who are concerned about the formation of congregations. So the audience for whom moral theology is written changes. This book will be used in the countless introductions to ethics in Catholic schools. Itwill make a real contribution to the scholarly literature in moral theology. There is no other book like it... -- Stanley Hauerwas, Gilbert T. Rowe Professor of Theological Ethics, Duke University Divinity School New Wine, New Wineskins is an important book.
