Commentaries and Interpretations
Jacob M. Kohlhaas and Mary M. Doyle Roche, Editors
A first of its kind critical engagement with the collected documents of Catholic Family Teaching
Catholic Family Teaching (CFT) has developed in parallel with Catholic Social Teaching (CST), yet has not similarly been critically explored as a documentary tradition. Modern Catholic Family Teaching redresses this imbalance through a collection of outstanding commentaries and interpretations of the primary texts and key developments of CFT.
Modern Catholic Family Teaching features academic commentary on magisterial texts that constitute primary sources of contemporary Catholic teaching on the family. Each chapter engages a moment in this tradition to invite critical academic engagement with CFT, a topic that increasingly bears weight across diverse areas of theological and ethical consideration.
This edited volume offers a clear understanding of the tradition’s growth and development over 130 years, equipping scholars and students of theology to engage the pressing questions of our time.
