Editorial Reviews


"Levering is by now at the forefront of the younger generation of Catholic theologians in America. The Betrayal of Charity provides a profound treatment of particular patterns of sin together with a proper placement of those patterns within the grammar of love. A lovely and intellectually stimulating book."

--Paul J. Griffiths, Warren Chair of Catholic Theology, Duke Divinity School

"Levering's account of love brings Aquinas' moral theology alive for contemporary readers. The Betrayal of Charity sets up a rich dialogue with the biblical texts, as well as Jewish, Protestant, and secular accounts of the virtues and the vices that contradict them."

--Brian Brock, Lecturer in Moral Practical Theology, University of Aberdeen and author of Christian Ethics in a Technological Age

"The Betrayal of Charity is spirited and engaging. Levering addresses very worthy interlocutors--including Hays and Schwartz--and gives them a good run for their money."

--Gary Anderson, Professor of Old Testament/Hebrew Bible, University of Notre Dame

From the Inside Flap

From sloth to scandal, a spirited exploration of love and the sins against it
