The Critical Calling: Reflections on Moral Dilemmas since Vatican II.

The Critical Calling: Reflections on Moral Dilemmas since Vatican II

Richard A. McCormick, SJ (Georgetown University Press, 2006, 434PP)

This reprint of The Critical Calling, first published in 1998, comes six years after the death of the author, one of the most respected theologians of our time. Identical to the first version but for a new foreword by Lisa Sowle Cahill, the book includes a section dedicated to moral theology and another that explores special social issues that the church has had to take on since Vatican II, such as genetic and reproductive technology, homosexuality, AIDS and Catholic health care.
