A Christian View of Ethics
by Dolores L Christie
Publisher:Fortress Press from Alban Books
The particular view of the title is that of the Roman Catholic Church. The author affirms that she takes an independant line on some of the issues she addresses, but does not always feel the need to make it clear where she stands. Notwithstanding, her general introduction to Roman Catholic moral teachings will be found helpful to those seeking guidance on the vexed question 'What ought I to do?' It may be only a quibble, but the distinction between ethics and morals might have been elucidated, if only in the glossary that the author provides. If they are interchangeable, this should have been stated; if not, then more needs to be said.
