"An eye-opening demonstration of how Catholic moral theology works in the concrete...[Keenan shows that] the Catholic tradition of moral theology is robust, timely, supple, humane and, most of all, wise enough to make vital contributions to ongoing global discussions about the current state of the Body of Christ." -National Catholic Reporter

Editorial Reviews

"...although this topic seems very narrow, the diversity of theological voices assures that it is never dull reading....The book is commendable for the generally very high quality of the essays, which is unusual in an edited volume. The essays are for the most part written in an accessible style and should not put off the theologically uninitiated. The use of over a dozen real cases anchors the discussion in reality and places the work squarely within the casuistic tradition. In a painful but not sensationalistic manner these cases bring the reader to understand both the worldwide dimensions of the HIV epidemic and the personal dimensions of a small number of the millions of lives it is destroying....this book is an impressive achievement-both because of what the authors say about the topic and because of the example it gives of the reflections of a truly world church, struggling with a truly worldwide problem, told by a truly world-class collection of theologians."--America, March 26, 2001
