Editorial Reviews


“In this festschrift, colleagues and students of Margaret Farley honor her groundbreaking work in feminist ethics, sexual ethics, and medical ethics and her generous labor as a teacher and mentor. Essays here probe the implications of Farley’s work for central theological ethical topics such as vocation, religious freedom, the role of the magisterium in teaching moral truths, virtues in the light of role responsibilities, and autonomy and relationality.” —Horizons


“The superb compilation captures the interdisciplinary, scholarly depth, the ecumenical, interfaith, and global breadth, and the spectrum of active involvement represented in [Margaret] Farley's life work. This volume is a 'must-read' for experts as well as for graduate theology and ethics students.” —Theological Studies

“These 15 essays honor the work of Margaret A. Farley, Gilbert. L. Stark Professor of Christian Ethics at Yale Divinity School. The contributors include some of the most prominent thinkers in Christian theology and ethics.” —Theology Digest

“These essays in honor of Yale Divinity School professor Margaret Farley speak to the issues that have driven Farley’s illustrious career: ethics, feminism, Roman Catholicism and sexuality.” —Publishers Weekly

“Margaret Farley’s students and colleagues honor her in this volume with their wide-ranging essays on feminist approaches to issues Margaret cares about: sexual abuse, contraception, hospitality, same-sex love, and more.” —WATERwheel

From the Inside Flap

"As a teacher, scholar, mentor, friend, as Sister of Mercy and sister in the struggle, Margaret has inhabited the borderlands of intersecting institutions and movements, commitments and communities. From her appointment to the faculty of Yale Divinity School in 1971, to her appointment to the Gilbert L. Stark Chair in Christian Ethics in 1986, to the milestone marked by this Festschrift, Margaret has embodied the best of Roman Catholic and ecumenical traditions of theology and ethics. As one of the pioneers of feminist ethics and theology she has labored persistently at the frontiers of these traditions, pushing back their boundaries while drawing from and drawing together their hearts." --Francine Cardman, from the Foreword
This interdisciplinary and ecumenical collection of essays honors the transformative work of Margaret A. Farley, using it as a starting point for reflection on the contribution of feminist methodology to theology and ethics. Through a variety of perspectives, contributors show that by resisting classical oppositions between "interpersonal" and "social" ethics and by insisting that social, economic, and political realities be taken seriously in considerations of justice, feminist concerns challenge the very categories of Christian ethics.
Some essays apply feminist methodology to classical problems in moral theology, such as the relationship of reason to emotion, the nature of virtue, and the intramural or ecclesial meaning of religious freedom. Many of the essays treat newly breaking problems for feminist theological ethics, such as those posed for the discourse of universal human rights by the forces of globalization. Others address issues relating to Farley's most recent work as director of the Yale Divinity School Project on Gender, Faith, and Responses to HIV/AIDS in Africa, and as co-director of the All Africa Conference: Sister to Sister, which facilitates responses to HIV/AIDS on the part of Roman Catholic women in Africa. A Just and True Love also includes two essays that treat the recent sexual abuse scandal among Roman Catholic priests from a feminist perspective.
