2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Mike DePue, OFS on February 21, 2013
Format: Paperback
The book's content is "deliberately limited" to some sensitive "life" issues "about which the Vatican or the National Conference of Catholic Bishops has issued some official teaching." These teachings (as well as the reasoning behind them) are even-handedly presented. But contrarian perspectives are also given a hearing--e.g., on war we get not only just war theory, but also the point of view of Christian militarism and that of pacifism.

Does this potentially muddy the decision-making waters? The author rather hopes so--"I believe that those who have little background in these matters benefit from first hearing both sides before having to take a stand." Being able to simply parrot a party line is NOT an outcome that the author desires for his readers.

An introductory chapter on moral reasoning, seven to ten practical cases on each issue (a college student selling his sperm to a sperm bank, for instance), open-ended and provocative discussion questions, and suggested readings for greater depth are provided.

This reviewer has been using a very similar approach for decades in programs on moral decision making. The participants invariably come away with a deeper and more insightful grasp of the issues and their fundamental or circumstantial complexities.
