Personal Responsibility and Christian Morality
Josef Fuchs, SJ

In this volume, Josef Fuchs has brought together 12 important essays which consider various aspects of the relationship between Christian morality and human behavior. Among the subjects he discusses are the connections between moral theology and Christian experience, the absolute character of moral norms, and the importance of ethical reflection in shaping the future of the human race.

"Fuchs is without doubt one of the Catholic Church's most distinguished moral theologians. His breadth of interest, depth of insight, and precision of analysis make him a theologian's theologian. Just as his work helped to prepare the way to Vatican II, his subsequent work in essays like these carries out the mandate of the Council to reshape moral theology by closer contact with the nourishing mysteries of the faith. These essays are vintage Fuchs—which means excellent."—Richard A. McCormick, SJ, University of Notre Dame
